Side-project Local Thessaloniki, all about social & location again
Two things I love in the web are social and location. What I love the most though, is the intersection of the social & interest graph with location (4sqwifi, anyone?) Hence my new side-project, Local Thessaloniki.
Local Thessaloniki is basically a foursquare list (you should follow it here), heavily curated to feature only the best venues of the city. All about food, coffee, drinks and cocktails. But there’s more. It’s a list embedded on an external (mine, lol) website that helps with the visual part — foursquare lacks on that one.
Whether you’re a tourist, a new dude in town or an old local, you’ll find places that you have and you are or you will be in love. In the meantime Local Thessaloniki also serves as a small foursquare experiment, thus the site might be in constant visual and technical change.
With six words, best local venue picks for Thessaloniki. Full of awesomeness.
What can you do with the list, by the way? Use it, browse it, mail me if you think I missed something and of course, share the hell out of it. You really should do that.
I’m also preparing versions for Athens, Vienna, Berlin, London and maybe San Francisco. Get in touch with me if you’re from any of these cities.
Update: visit Local Thessaloniki from your mobile/iOS device, wait for the new mobile view to load, tap on “Add to Home Screen” and enjoy the Mobile Local Thessaloniki as a web-app. Plus, as icon, Thessaloniki’s new brand.
