Mezzoman is a small simple mashup that helps people get together. Given two locations and an activity it finds suitable locations for people to meet that’s at roughly the halfway point. This screencast from DemoGirl shows how straightforward the application is to use.
The application can be used in from the main website, or via Facebook where, depending on privacy settings, it may already know your friends’ locations.
Developed by Mark Zider and Tim Dempski, the inspiration behind the application is best summed up in Tim’s post:
“Mezzoman…is a mashup we created for a simple reason…Our friends live all over the place and we were tired (and so were they) of trying to find places to meet.”
Currently in beta, the application has tremendous scope for further development by extending the number of participants, range of activities or linking to transportation, scheduling and reservation systems.
