Involver is Pretty Damn Slick
involver — Photowalking in San Francisco Well I just got an invitation a few hours ago from Matt Oesterle (they launched late last night) to join Involver.com and I’ve spent the past few hours clicking around the site and I have to say it’s pretty cool.
It’s like upcoming.org but with a much better interface. Not that upcoming.org has a bad interface or anything, it’s just that involver feels really slick.
It has a lot of the basics. Like you have a profile. There is a calendar and you can create events. But then it has other cool social networking features, like things that update you as your friends do things on the site. Facebook type things like when a friend of yours adds another friend, etc.
I found out that Josh Ritter, who I like a lot, is going to be playing at the Sweedish American Hall (a venue I like a lot) for something called Noise Pop Festival on Feb. 28th. It looks like Sebadoh is playing there too. Nice. I shot Josh Ritter a while back when he played at the Great American Music Hall.
Anyways, check out Involver. If you want to add me as a friend my profile is here.
I also added our Photowalk for Wednesday with Don MacAskill and the out of town Smugmuggers (damn, that sounds like a band name) on the site. We are going to meet at 2pm at the corner of Grant and Bush at the entrance to Chinatown if you can make it. If you can’t make it at 2pm plan on coming out anyways. Just shoot me an email and we can hook up a little later. I plan on shooting later that night in the city as well.
