On May 24, the trilogy becomes complete. Hangover III, the finale, launches in a movie theater near you.
You might be wondering, how is a slapstick comedy, like The Hangover, even remotely similar to open social collaboration? But, you’re wrong. You don’t know this, but Tracky and The Hangover could be cousins, identical cousins, they’re so closely related.
- Tracky users are a wolf pack (#wolfpack). Don’t we all have a little bit of Phil, Alan, Doug and Stew in us? The need to be accepted, to be part of a group and, of course, go on wild adventures to save our friends from imminent danger--all in a day’s work. Tracky users aren’t phased by a little danger and excel under pressure. They’re strategic, tactical and fun--important qualities of any wolf pack. You’re most likely to find a Tracky superuser singing songs about tigers or planning a VIP trip to places like Las Vegas or Bangkok.
- Open social collaboration might have the perception of a suit and tie, but it’s really like a funny man with a beard (and a baby). Our developers are pretty cool. They like social networks, so they designed Tracky to feel like you’re using Twitter or Facebook. People think they know project management, but are probably using outdated or cumbersome systems that don’t focus on the “workflow of today.” If it feels fun, you’re probably more likely to use it. If Alan were here right now, he would endorse Tracky. You can ask him yourself, just page him on his beeper.
- You gotta find Doug (or Chow). Picture Doug as the never ending task list you need to get done. It’s scary and overwhelming. Sometimes you want to sit in a tiger-less bathroom and cry. But, when you work together and focus on the most important things, you can see a light at the end of the tunnel. Tracky allows people to work as individuals and bring in others to work together, as needed. Why does Doug always get rescued? Because it’s not an option to fail.
- The Tracky team is based in Vegas. Yep, this one is a gimme. Not only are we based in Vegas, but our launch party was at Mike Tyson’s mansion.
Are you going to see Hangover III when it comes out in theaters? What about dressed up as one of the characters? If you do, send us a photo of you and we’ll feature it on the Tracky blog and across the interwebz.
