Since SXSW Interactive is all about, you know, interacting, we've partnered with Sonar and RecordSetter to help you connect with people you don't already know but should! First, Sonar will recommend three personalized "Can't Be Missed Connections," and then RecordSetter will help you break the ice by challenging you to set world records. Wear the most floaties ever worn on one arm, or join the largest simultaneous group cannonball, or find some crazy record for you and your new connections to beat.
Just sign up for a Sonar account here: http://sonar.me and they'll send you an email before the party with the names of three people who you don't already know, but should!
Sonar is a mobile app that shows you hidden connections you share with other people nearby. By leveraging social and location data from networks like Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and LinkedIn, Sonar gives you context about the people surrounding you, and helps introduce you to relevant people who share your interests, friends and professional contacts.
RecordSetter is an interactive media company building a global brand centered around human achievement. Their website allows anyone, anywhere, to compete against others in any type of category. The RecordSetter database hosts over 13,000 world records submitted from 65+ countries, making it the largest collection of world record videos on the Internet. The New Yorker calls it “a Web site that is to the Guinness World Records as Wikipedia is to the Encyclopaedia Britannica.”
