Social Networking IRL

I hate facebook. Not from a personal privacy standpoint, but because I simply don't like the necessary upkeep, the constant monitoring, the expectation that I've seen your pictures so you don't show them to me. Yet the internet still should be able to connect me to people and events that I am interested in- right around me, right now. Enter Get Spontaneous, a tool which invites users to post events ranging from pick-up soccer games to door-knocking staging areas to multi-million person concerts. I'm a big fan of where this might go, and right now, it looks like the only thing it's missing is users. I want to use the internet to enrich my life, not the other way around.
