Spumeggianti, quanto meno. Sono i “ragazzi” di HiNii, interessante startup che si propone come via di mezzo tra Foursquare e un Recommendation System – cioè in sintesi cerca di suggerirti luoghi o attività che possono interessarti, sulla base del luogo in cui ti trovi o di quanto hai espresso in precedenza. Come se sviluppare una piattaforma non bastasse, hanno anche creato uno StartupBlog in cui parlano dei e con i colleghi. E in questo post hanno fatto un interessante riassunto di quanto visto ai Percorsi dell’Innovazione di Smau. Fulvio Rubini mi ha dato l’ok per ripubblicarlo qui:
