I am a personal assistant to help you with remembering, recalling, discovering, and sharing information like places to eat, drink, stay, run, swim, play. As I get to know you better, I get to know your preferences and connections. I am an assistant (vs a social service like Yelp! or Foursquare) because I can be trusted with private information and I won't make a recommendation that's not highly qualified.
How interesting is that to you?
Today, when you're after a restaurant or hotel or gym or whatever in a place you don't know, how do you find what you're looking for?
How do you keep track of your best discoveries? Like, when you travel and discover a fantastic hotel or restaurant or park?
To structure the world a little bit and help me navigate it efficiently, I think of "things" in terms of type. Right now: bars/pubs, restaurants, hotels, parks, shops, gyms/clubs. What kinds of things am I missing?
When you tell me about new stuff, I'll assume your insights can be shared within a close network... unless you tell me something is private.
I'm telling you right now that I'll keep your private information private. But will you trust me to do that?
If I gave you the option, would you background-share your location info with me from your mobile device(s) so I could more proactively help you find stuff? Or is that kind of stuff shared on a need-to-know basis.
Want to help me out with some early testing? I'll need you to make an effort to really kick the tires of all the skills: remember stuff, share stuff, search for stuff. And send me screen shots when things seem messed up. You'll have access via SMS and the web app. If you're up for it, tell me the best email address and I'll followup with details. And thanks!
Anyone else you'd suggest I reach out to about testing? If so, just give me a name and email. Or, you can share this form with them.
