Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear?

Techcrunch yesterday had a tip off to a new service called loopt
The premise here is that you can use your cell phone, map function, and GPS ability so you will always know when your ‘friends’ are near and your friends can know where you are.

As the text at Loopt says:

Get Alerts when friends are nearby

* Chirp Friends when you find them on the map
* Send Messages to a group of friends
* Send Web Messages – just like email
* Send Proximity Messages to your friends that are near you

Whatever became of serendipity? Are we turning into a bunch of puppies in a litter who can’t bear to be separated? Isn’t part of the pleasure in seeing friends the joy in being reunited?
