This is cool. This extension of online communities to the real world is really neat.
Seattle Flickrites is picture-perfect for photographers
Yelp is like this. People will meet for dinner and they have an elite squad which has frequent get togethers too!
I've got a friend who on a trip to New York meet on of her Flickr contacts.
It's cool how the internet has gone from a collection of information to a way to actually interact with other people.
Last night I was IM'ing a friend across the country. He was catching up on my blog while I was reading reviews on Yelp. It is great how technology brings us all together!
