Tinder: swiping yes to intimate invitations from relative strangers

"Tinder uses your existing social networking data from Facebook to locate people in the immediate vicinity, tell you a bit about them, whether you have any friends in common and (most importantly) show you a pic.

It has slimmed down the emotional, cognitive and financial investment required by the virtual dating process to one simple question: 'Do I want to do you?' What more modern way to make that most basic binary decision of whether you want to shag someone than a game of real–world 'Hot or Not'?

Social media has made us expert first–daters, well–versed in smalltalk and over–sharing with strangers. The quick follow–though from swipe to sex is similarly instinctive for a generation with an appetite for immediacy."

Get your Last.fm recommendations in Spotify

"Another improvement has been rolled out to Spotify recommendations engine Spotibot. The service, which aims to help users find music they like, but just don't know yet, has added Last.fm integration.

What that means is that instead of having to put in a song or band name you like, you can just get recommendations based on your recent listening instead. You just put in your Last.fm account name, or the account of anyone else for that matter, and you can generate a list of 5 to 30 songs that you're going to love. Well, maybe. ...

This is just the 'recommendations' bit of Last.fm at work. It also has 'your library', 'neighborhood' and 'loved tracks' functionality that could easily be added in the same way, so keep your eyes on Spotibot over the next month or so."
