The other day I was browsing my avantgo subscribed channel on my PDA – (I believe it was USA today) and came across a web dating service known as friendster. Basically its like napster but for friends, and possibly friends of friends of friends etc to hook up. I don’t know why nobody else ever thought of doing that since people do hook up that way in real life – this just makes it easier to take out the creepiness of online dating.

And for my vegan friends, there is veggiedate!

What I would like to do is develop a system like that for everything from finding someone to take care of the plumbing to a good used car salesman. Word of mouth referrals help but wouldn’t it be nice if that could travel at internet speed? Anyway some details will have to be ironed out but it would definitely be a welcome addition for professional services.
