  1. Thanks Philip for this cool example!!

    Surely this is a nice case standing next to foursquare.com or yelp.com. But I like the aspect of receiving activity recommendations…personalized. Well, it all depends I think on how successfully can these guys predict the preferences of consumers. The challenge is to find an easy but insightful way to accurately profile each visitor.

  2. Hi Philip, hi Dimitris,
    there is already a site doing this stuff – and it’s already proven.
    They use a very accurate way to characterize the user by demographic, psychologic and behavioral data.
    You can check out the activity-recommendations and also the user and location guide.
    The site is called Nightlife Check: https://www.nightlife-check.com
