Last year, we were presenting hipoqih at Where 2.0 2007 during the Ignite Event. It was a wonderful experience and a lot of people knew hipoqih for the first time at this event. Hipoqih is an experimental project that allows people to share their location using a small application installed in their mobile devices. So, you can see where hipoqih users are and follow them in Google Maps in realtime.
Six months later, in late December 2007, we launch the next version of the hipoqih project under a new brand: www.ipoki.com.
Ipoki.com is a GPS-based social network.
We will present our new project and talk about the relationship between the geolocation services and the new social networks; issues that we have researched on.
Ipoki will have a lot of new exciting features as result of these researches:
Ipoki.com is a startup based on Spain.
