For years and years, we tried to get dodgeball users free drinks… and we were finally able to pull it off with Foursquare (I really like the idea of foursquare as a vehicle for letting local merchants reward their locals/regulars). Woo!
I got the 3rd degree from Steve Marsh and Jason DeRusha at dinner on Friday night about why I'm not on Foursquare. My excuse given was that I don't have an iPhone (how accessible is it on a BlackBerry Curve, really?) but honestly I'm just not sure what the point is. Dodgeball never did catch on and most people (including me) use Twitter now to alert followers when they're arrived at a restaurant/bar/show (in addition, of course, to all that delicious microblogging). A free drink once in a while might make the extra effort worthwhile.
