At The Pool Matches Users, Interests
A new, Los Angeles startup At The Pool, headed by Alex Capecelatro, has started letting users sign on to the service, helping to match them based on their location, interests, and other information. The startup said its first, public pool, "siliconbeach", is aimed at locals in the Silicon Beach area. At The Pool is the latest incarnation of Hyphos, Capecalatro's effort to help create a social discovery platform to connect people you don't know, based on their interests. At The Pool allows you to build your own, personal profile, and sends out a daily email to help match you with other locals, encouraging people to meet people offline.
