“With all the jokes about people finding dates on twitter Radaroo has created a prototype template. Users sign up by sending a tweet to @radaroo, specifying their gender, the gender(s) they’re interested in, and which activities they’d like to participate in on a first date.” <paraphrased>

It reminds me of the speed dating phenomenon where studies showed that most people made their choices within the first three seconds of meeting. Another study on split-second decision making, chronicled in Blink, found that what people said they wanted in an ideal mate did not match their subconscious preferences.

I dunno, with the advent of Second Life where you can make money, marry people, have kids and live your lives without out ever really meeting them, I’m thinking we are getting much closer to the Matrix world Neo discovered when he took the red pill. Where’s the blue pill?
