I make software to accelerate communication, and deepen our awareness.

I have a special emphasis on Semantic Desktop and Visual Language technology.

Apparently I'm also into Visual Poetry, and Python.

I love the sharing that happens on this site! So much talent here.

This is my lifemap (I'm updating it ;D)

comment Webapps for ad-hoc short term activity pairing with scheduled events based around a shared interest, sorted by social distance?
Thanks for the thought, it's an interesting idea. I'd also note meetup isn't tailored to virtual groups so isn't very global - it's explicitly local so it restricts the number and diversity of people available. Because of timezones - if something is happening in the next 40 minutes say, timezones are irrelevant but with meetup it would be another thing to calculate if not local... people have to set their own calender or reminder etc... It also doesn't have as many users as say Facebook, which already has social graph, group and interest data.

If Facebook's event feature had events listed sorted socially, temporally, and by topic, with event invitation being more suggestive - it might be complete. They probably will eventually I suppose but I'd like to see this specific use case nailed ASAP to accelerate collaboration for pretty much the same reasons stackexchange et al is important.

Yeah it's likely the answer application would be built on Facebook in some way because it has a well populated social graph available and interest metadata like groups and pages that would facilitate building up potentially interesting event categories. Great to interact with you Jeff, thanks very much for your post On Working Remotely (in addition to hacking on SO,meta etc)!
