The more I peel off the layers of the new Plazer application for OS X, the more I like. Truth be told, the original Plazes Launcher for the Mac didn’t have any layers to peel; the Plazer, though, is a bona fide Mac app with lots of nice touches. My favourite so far is this:
No more “left the Launcher running at the office so everybody thinks that I’m there and there’s nothing I can do about it.”
The big Plazes challenge for me now is to convince other locals of its value. While it’s proved an excellent tool to locate Cynthia Dunsford, its practical utility as a general purpose “find my friends and family” tool has been limited by slow uptake (or uptake and then opt out). If you’re interested in experimenting with Plazes, but need an overview (complete with what the privacy implications are), get in touch.
