new addictive location-based instant messaging program, meetro, currently in beta

Image hosted by
The popular scenester mating grounds, Myspace and Friendster, have revolutionized the way people meet each other over distance. If there are beautiful people just like you nearby, chances are you can find them by doing a location search. Services like these connect you to vast amounts of interesting people without even having to leave your home. If you're like me, there's nothing more dissapointing than ending up in the back of a stranger's car and being exposed to the new Limp Bizkit cd. We did not ask for friends like these - can't we just find people exactly like ourselves, and find them nearby? For those who don't want to know anyone who hasn't read the latest Delillo novel, there's a new service in town, combining the best of all worlds in a functioning location based instant messaging program. Meetro combines the perks of AOL Instant Messenger or Trillian, with those of Myspace or Friendster, inside of one program.

You can picture Meetro like Wal-mart. You used to have to go to the supermarket for food, Circuit City for electronics, and Toys 'r us for squirt guns, but now everything is in one place, putting the other stores out of business. The only difference is that Meetro's competition is large corporations instead of little shops.

Meetro, like Trillian, combines multiple instant messenging programs in one, so you don't have to use one program for Yahoo ims, one for AIM, and one for MSN - they're all in one place, they've been assimilated. Plus, it's organized around personal photos, rather than icons or bare screen names, so you can filter through vast numbers of people based on how immediately beautiful they are. Strangers are organized around their distance from whatever location you're at at the moment, with the closest people coming first. If you're sitting in a coffee shop in a strange town, you can connect your wireless and make some friends. It's addictive.

Meetro is currently only in its beta phase (it's in testing, but you can still download it now), but has ambitious world-dominating potential. The staff are super friendly too.

All of Wal-Mart's foriegn goods are actually made in China which is not a third world country. Read any current book on world economics and you will find this to be the truth. While I am a fellow liberal who detests the human rights records of countries such as China I am also an informed intelectual who detests misinformed bloggers. Also I am a feminist and I take you're drivel about meeting "beautiful" people to be the sick workings of a mind completely molded by the 'perfect' physical image the media forces into weak minds the world over.

reading books on world economics isn't exactly my pastime, but there's no excuse for being misinformed, even if it was just a misinformed joke.
you're right about the beauty thing too. however, after thinking about this issue for the past couple of years, even reading feminism myself, i've decided that there's nothing i'm going to do about it. i'm addicted to images, even if other people shouldn't be.
