Of late I’ve blogged about how an event, service, blog, etc…can provide a place for visitors to interact, the most in vogue at the moment is a social network, eg. mowser service, mashable blog, reboot conference, Supernova conference (this is more of a lifestream for a conference, where visitors can leave messages, comment, add as a friends…all the network fun).
The latest Online Community Unconference 2007 has taken the social network concept one further by getting people to add their lifestream tidbits and then run some network analysis over it resulting in a matching service, which is ideal for like people in a conference environment.
The social network enables users to engage as usual, and top of it goes one further by matching people, why not!
So many lifestream services of late, what about some of these do the same, eg. Wink could use its data visually by doing some like interests or content analysis and match people in a visual circle of connections of closeness.
