Striking up a friendly rapport with a newcomer becomes the exception, not the norm. These days, there are apps for pretty much anything, from getting a cleaner in after a party to chartering a private jet and booking a massage. ‘Wiith’, a new San Francisco-based app, is designed to buddy you up with people looking for buddies. No romance, no sex, just pure, unadulterated friendship. The premise is simple: if you’re new to a city, or just want to meet someone new, the app connects you with like-minded others inside a set radius.You sign up via Facebook, build a basic profile, then approach people for friendship or arrange social events and invite others along.JCW: Okay, so if you’ve got any questions, give us a call on 883 0702 and we’ve got an expert here and he has got information that very few people, I dare say, are privy to. All of our chemical and electrical signals involve water in the body, somehow, electrical communications in the body.So, the industry has picked the worst possible part of the electromagnetic spectrum to give to young children and to adults.• Bristlr: a dating app for bearded men and the women who love them Wiith co-founder Jeff Hodnett told Tech Cruch that he believed Meetup is “too rigid” for more natural, spontaneous get-togethers.It’s here where the app’s likeness to Tinder becomes starkly apparent.BT: To be honest ma’am, I don’t care about the official secrets act when I see what is going on in the world through…really ignorance…what I call ignorance. BT: …stranded in South Africa, well, not stranded until tomorrow, uhm, there’s a very young lady who was sitting outside…organised a series of lectures and talks for…there’s a little boy not far away with a tumour…near a transmitter and I was asked to go see the little boy and discuss what I knew…uhm…his majesty in Botswana asked me to give a conference, or present a conference to his ministers on, not only the health issues, but the environmental impact to the animals.
Peoplehunt exists, too, although it is now mainly a tool for finding others who might be able to help you with something (language exchange classes are popular on the format).The new model is apparently more fluid, loose, and appears to favour randomness – all things young people enjoy.“We think Wiith is a lot more spontaneous than Meetup, along with not having the dating stigma of Tinder,” Hodnett said.JCW: And here we are talking about cell phones for instance…that’s what you’re talking about. JCW: So, if France for instance is saying that children should not be given mobile phones under the age of fourteen, for instance…uhm…the European parliament voted by a large majority to recommend tighter safety standards, and this included wi fi and whatever, but also protecting vulnerable groups like children…pregnant moms as well?BT: Absolutely ma’am…uhm…can I come back to your first point? BT: Uhm…I saw quite a large delegation from France a few years ago, and not just down to me, but they obviously took heed of what I said and went off and checked a few things, but, we know now in France, I’ll have it published, that they are pulling wi fi out of every single French school, on health grounds.
