Mobile mingle

Want to know what's hot right now? Look at what the smartest guy in Denmark, Nikolaj Nyholm, is up to (or meet him at SIME 2007). Nikolaj's newest project, that has been flying under the radar, is Imity. This is Facebook 2.0, a mobile social networking service that uses bluetooth. The service was mentioned on TechCrunch in a round up of mobile social networks: "Imagine walking into a meeting, classroom, party, bar, subway station, airplane, etc. and seeing profile information about other people in the area, depending on privacy settings. Picture, name, dating status, resume information, etc. The information that is available would be relevant to the setting - quick LinkedIn type information for a business meeting v. Facebook dating status for a bar".

Interesting, I had missed that one. There are so many cool new websites being released that it's not always easy to keep up! Some things need to be tested IRL before deciding if they're useful. :)

I will ask Nikolaj Nyholm to give us some feedback from their beta testing period.
