Do you poken ?

Poken

Yesterday I got my very own Poken (special thanks to Clopin for ordering). A Poken is a sort of virtual business card that comes in various designs (bee, alien, skull, panda) and can be wirelessly exchanged with another Poken over RFID.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You go to www.doyoupoken.com and buy one or, even better, gather 11 friends and order a batch of 12 like the belgian twittosphere has been doing. The damage: 10 euros.
  2. Your Poken is being shipped. In the meanwhile, find something else to do. Like, for example, reading your feeds or taking a very long walk.
  3. Your Poken arrives. Unpack it, plug into the nearest USB port you can find and start up the file “start_poken.html. You’ll be redirected to the www.doyoupoken.com website to create an account. This is where you add you’re picture, contact information and link your Poken account to your various social network accounts.
  4. Start up that html file one more time to log in and link your Poken device to your account.
  5. And that’s it … you’re done ! Congrats ! What are you waiting for ? Get out there and start Poken …

PS: And another thing: the Poken has 1 gig of memory built in, so you can also use it as a memory stick if you’d like.
