The SNIFnet - Social Networking for Dogs

I want to join SNIF - the real (not virtual) social network for dogs. In this brilliant implementation your canine social network is not who you say you know, but who you actually sniff.

Their diagram at SNIF is silly though because they have the dogs sniffing each other on the head! That's not where dogs sniff; we sniff...oops Mom says I can't type that or my blog will be censored.

"If you've ever longed for a way to monitor your dog's social life, map out its buddy network and sense who its true friends really are, you might have been waiting for SNIF. The Social Networking in Fur, or SNIF, project is a wearable computer system for dogs that allows their owners to monitor the animals' behavior and capture their social networks."

Wow, what a coincadink! Someone handed my sidekick a white paper on SNIF at a conference last week. I even blogged on it today too!

Great minds think alike Sam.

I hadn't seen the article you link to - very cool.
