Wollongong: Mostly Harmless

Its the little things that count – while signing up to Dopplr (care of fellow CSC’er Mark) I was asked to enter my Home City – all I typed in was the word “Wollongong“. Dopplr replied:

We know about just one place in the world that matches what you’ve typed: Wollongong, Australia.

Nice, very nice.

Every Web 2.0 service out there please take note, I might not live in North America, but I am still part of the known universe rather than the mystical realm of otherland or the kingdom of noneoftheabove 🙂

  1. haha that made me laugh :)But you are right: is it really that hard for a decent database to be used for locations online? Hmmm what Dopplr should’ve said was: “We know about just one place in the world that matches what you’ve typed: Wollongong, Australia. And your broadband sucks.”
