Taken from the e-consultancy Q&A,
A former senior product manager for Nokia’s internet tablet devices in Finland, Jyri Engeström this year left to form his own startup, Jaiku . It is part of a new wave of mobile presence services designed to help inter-company groups and loved ones stay in touch.
What is Jaiku?
It’s a web and mobile service that brings people closer together by enabling them to share their rich presence. It’s about enabling people to stay connected, rather than “connecting people“, because the connections with phones are often quite random - you don’t know if the other person is able to take your call but you still try because that’s your only option. Jaiku is more about a constant state of connectedness.
Jason Calacanis and Tyler Crowley will also be at the geekdinner thanks to NMK Forum - http://nmkforum.co.uk/
