Finding a Date — on the Spot –

Meetmoi is an online dating service that works via SMS – offers ‘speed-dating’ by text message for 10 minutes to those who meet in a virtual lobby, determined by post code.A neat, bottom-up idea. A sort of geocaching where people are the geocache. The idea may be transferable – isolation is a notorious problem for distance learners: if it were possible to find others nearby in near-real-time it might help a lot.In fact, though geographical collocation would be nice, even the ability to find other ‘lonely learners’ would be beneficial.
