Frappr screenshotEverywhere you look, ’bloggers attending Lotusphere 2006 urge you to sling a “shoutout” up on to the Lotusphere 2006 Frappr page. Well, I tried just that. And it doesn’t work at all. Just because Google maps knows where yer city is, doesn’t mean Frappr does. Bah.

  2. Oops! just realised that wasn't such a funny thing to say given lives lost and injuries…sorry!Colin Williams#
  3. Ha!. You live in a city ? Our village has four lamposts and a pub.

    However, its quite a cute Ajax enabled UI - type something in, wait for it (I said - "wait for it…") - and a list of possibles will appear.

    At one stage I was then able to slide my Frappr over the pub itself, given thats where most people find me (or leave me..)

  4. Only a city in McMerican terms I can assure you! I double-checked, but Frappr doesn’t know it, or the immediate neighbours. Oh well.Ben Poole#
