On YackPack

~ 01 November 2005 ~

BJ Fogg tells me he can finally yack about YackPack, a web app which claims to make it “easy to send audio messages to one or many people inside a private group.”

From the site:

“YackPack is easier than email (kids as young as 3 can use it), and it’s more convenient than phone (no need to coordinate schedules). YackPack conveys the nuances of spoken language, leading to better communication, stronger friendships, and more group unity. On top of that, YackPack can be a lot of fun.”

More at his blog, including a tale about literally giving up the dog for YackPack.

BJ tends to place his bets only when the odds are heavily in his favor, so I’ll be keeping an eye out on this one. You might consider doing the same.
