Dave's Wordpress Blog ? Social networks in meatspace

source: Winer

I just had a wacky idea.

We know what social network software is, right.

Now suppose we turned a conference into a social network.

Ask everyone who's coming to sign up with LinkedIn or Friendster, or maybe Ted Leonsis's new system.

Then we ask people to check off people they'd like to talk with at the conference, and make a brief note about what they want to talk about, and whether or not it must be private, and how long it will take, and if it can be part of a group discussion.

The person you want to meet with can say yes or no or no response.

i think it's a very good idea ? but i would open it up to anyone, not just those attending the confreence. then i would contrive a way with metadata feeds such that it doesn't matter what webservice the people were subscribed to. Now, that's a wacky idea, huh? ? i mean we don't need no stinking domain names getting in the way of our social networks, eh? Me thinks that basically all you need is to specify a tag for the conference and have a list of social network webservices that are being polled.
obviously people not physically attending would interact via IM, email, or blogosphere, phone, or video conference.
