Shiny Shiny: Fatepod
allows users to upload an ‘encounter’ or search listed ‘encounters’ –
something along the lines of "Were you the guy with the red tie that
cast me a look outside Starbucks?” Founder Louise explains that if the
other person then logs on to the site and sees the post, the two
individuals can start to exchange messages and eventually meet up.
It’s the opportunist’s way to date. Before the site, if you met
someone on your lunch hour or waiting for a train and realised you had a
‘spark’ but didn’t have the confidence to ask for the other person’s
phone number, the opportunity to make contact is lost. Fatepod offers a
second chance – a chance to change fate.
