Digg – Facebook Carpool: the First Useful Facebook Application – so the Facebook application I’ve been working on made #1 on digg. not bad.
By “working on,” I mostly mean giving my opinions and advice, as I don’t have the time to work on this right now, what with being back for another internship at Microsoft.
Someday I’ll write a longer post about this, but basically I’m really excited to be helping, even in a small way, with promoting a tool as fundamentally useful of this. Meeting new people, saving energy and money, etc.
Carpooling is a chicken-and-egg problem app. It’s only useful if there are a lot of people in the same place using it as well. Before being dugg, we had a lot of users in California and in Waterloo, whereas presumably these new users will be much more spread out. So it is a mixed blessing.
Anyhow, here’s hoping we change the world 🙂
