A little birdy told me that a new app called Chirp could revolutionize how we all communicate By Mike ElganJuly 28, 2012 07:00 AM
Its not often that a jaded veteran like me falls in love with an app. But it happened this week with a new app called Chirp. Its based on one of those rare technologies like HTTP or XML that at first seems trifling, but ends up changing everything.
To oversimplify, Chirp uses sound to transmit words, pictures and URLs from one phone to another.Its called Chirp, because its data transmission sounds like a robotic bird.
First, Ill tell you how Chirp works. Then Ill tell you why I think this bird has wings and could change how we all share data.
