There are lots of so-called ‘social software’ web sites that help you umm stay in touch with friends, or make new ones or something (Friendster, Tribe, Orkut, etc). Some are more socially oriented, others are more about business.
What I’d really like is one that supports my travel habits. I fly to lots of places. Many of my friends do too. But none of these sites help us drink beer together. I’d love to send travel email (“this is your flight information”) to a web site. It would parse it, and lookup who else who you know will be there then, and send you both an email.
Luke Nelson and I came up with this over beer in Portland, thanks to Jeff. Thanks Jeff! If anyone would like to run off and build this, please buy us all beer. You’ll know when we’re in town.
