Wouldn't it be great if there was an app that allowed me to add people that I met at EA Global conferences, and if we end up in the same city again due to travel or work, it would send each of us a notification so we can meet and catch up?
– My thoughts a few months ago
A friend just told me about Small World, which does exactly this. As would be expected of a techy, coordinated, open-minded group, there's a lot of software popular in the EA community that facilitates better™ social connection, like Swapcard, Calendly, reciprocity.io, and dating docs, and I propose we add Small World to the repertoire.
There is a "Community" tab here on the EA forum with a map of users, but I want to be able to add specific friends and receive notifications when they visit.
This sounds cool but... It only works with Twitter?!
Yeah, it's not perfect... I'd like to be able to silently block people too, in case I no longer want to hang out with them. But hey, it's open source, maybe we can improve it.
