    Hello.
    I was kicking around an idea of an application that would be able to discover when others running the same application were within a certain distance to it. I figure this would need to leverage some sort of database storing location coordinates that the application can ping and update every x minutes.
    Does anybody have any thoughts or alternative ideas to do this? Would love to see what others think...
    Thank you,
    James

    bluetooth. the distance is probably much shorter than what you have in mind. with bt it's more annonymous and easier to accept by most people, I guess.
