ABSTRACT
Currently described in the U.S. as "the next eBay," meetup.com is a website that organises local gatherings for people of similar mindsets or interests. Quit-smoking groups, Harry Potter fans, work-from-home mums, people who like knitting — the site helps them get together in restaurants, shops and other meeting places, which effectively fund the thing. A free service that organizes local gatherings about anything, anywhere. It's like Friends Reunited, except you're guaranteed to have something to say to the people you meet here. Although it's not been going long, indications from the U.S. are that this is going to be huge.
