It’s Raining Links to WHAIWHAI!

Some people have been having lots of fun with WHAIWHAI the past few weeks. Several blog posts have sprung up about our city adventure from far and wide. See for yourself – here’s a list of the sites that have mentioned us recently, followed by a description of those sites taken from their “About” sections:

webintravel.com talks about a “WHAIWHAI Revolution”!

(WIT is a content and community platform for the travel distribution, marketing and technology space. It provides news, commentary, analysis and opinions and organizes events that break down walls between people, cultures, knowledge and ideas.)

cloudview.com refers to that WIT article

(At Cloud View we help organizations and companies look at their business from a Design Thinking perspective.  This will mean looking at the business from a more customer-centric perspective. It will also mean looking at what the business wants to achieve, what its challenges are and what technology and tools we have available.)

springwise.com has an article entitled “City guides reveal stories through urban adventures”

(Helped by a network of 8,000 spotters, Springwise editors scan the globe for smart new business ideas, delivering instant inspiration to entrepreneurial minds. )

belowthebiz.com opens its post about whaiwhai saying it’s “…probably one of the finest, most innovative ideas born in Italy (or elsewhere) in the past few years.” Thanks, Antonio!

(On this site, I simply express my point of view based on my experience and what I see every day. It’s mainly geared towards people in management, in companies big and small.)

Happy 2011

Hey hey, happy new year, everyone!

We’re coming back to work after a few days of traveling, snow, evaluations of the old year and good resolutions for the new one.

Holidays are good for WHAIWHAI because these are the times when we get the most players to hunt in our cities. Dozens of hunts have taken place during the past couple of weeks in Venice, Rome, Florence, Milan and Verona. We hope you didn’t freeze looking for the right answers!

Some players have started using the iPhone version of WHAIWHAI: if you haven’t done so already, download it! The web is saying good stuff about it. Here are a couple of reviews, one in English, the other in Italian: WHAIWHAI: Game-based interactive city guide project for iPhone e iPhoneItalia App of the Week [#11]: l’applicazione della settimana selezionata dal nostro staff

WHAIWHAI on the TV Show Innovation

In September, a crew from Italian broadcasting network LA7 paid us a visit on the H-Farm to do a report about WHAIWHAI for their programme Innovation, which is about new developments in technology. They decided to do a show about our storyline-in-the-city game through an interview and a game simulation in Venice. The upshot is a fun report about LOG607 that aired last Sunday on LA7. Tomas describes the guidebook series and how the game works in the garden of our beautiful headquarters in Ca’ Tron, while Giulia and Stefania run around Venice looking for clues and texting. Watch the video – but erase those page codes they show from your memory! They had promised they wouldn’t reveal anything, but evidently they just couldn’t resist.
