I'm an IP/tech/privacy attorney with a prior life in product design and programming. Before I went to law school, I spent a few years doing web design, and then a few years coding ASP/HTML/CSS/SQL for an internet start-up. Three years ago, I decided I wanted to get back in the game. Since then, I've been working on a variety of concepts/products to solve problems that affect me in my everyday life -- including radius.

Product Desc:radius

radius is a simple, easy-to-use social networking app that allows people to connect with others around them to do the things they like to do. Whether it's finding seven more people to play basketball, finding a rock climbing partner, learning an instrument, or joining up with an existing game of dodgeball, radius allows you to connect, chat with, locate, and meet up with the people around you who share your interests.
We have a ratings feature (reviews), a compatibility system, fully-functioning chat, "buddies," and brief user profiles. We're still looking to improve, add new features, and test on a wider scale.
We're currently in beta. Here's a version of our website, which is on hold while we fix our actual one: Lyster, Co-Founder & Content Evangelist of Alacrity Software
