Meetup.com

Posted on October 18, 2007. Filed under: Educational, Fun, Resources |

I’m celebrating my 6 month anniversary as a proud Meetup.com member and could not help but christen the momentus occasion with a blog post.  Meetup.com is a social networking site that aims to connect people with similar interests by allowing them to post notices of events and meetings. 

Say you love kayaking.  You can sign up to be a “member” of the local New Haven kayaking group and be informed of any kayaking trips they are taking.  More importantly, you are able to meet people who share your love of kayaking and make new friends to share new adventures with.  I personally could not be more happy to receive email notifications of new group activities and always look forward to upcoming meetings of my favorite groups.  But don’t just take my word for it, here’s what bigger publications with better writers are saying about meetup.com:

Time“A convenient, non-threatening way to connect to other people who share similar interests and live nearby.”

Newsweek “…helps groups of strangers organize monthly powwows at local watering holes.”

Toronto Sun“…it’s important to stay true to your passions or interests, whatever they may be… An opportunity to reconnect with yourself and others in a stress-free environment. It’s as simple as that.”
