Hell is Other Poeple

Feeling anti-social? Now there’s a web app for that. It’s aptly called ‘Hell is Other People’ and it was created by Scott Garner as a web experiment in anti-social media. The service uses data from your Foursquare account to map a route around town or wherever you want to go that will avoid any place or location where your friends are. You know, just in case you’re feeling anti-social and don’t want to run into anyone you know when you’re out and about.

Scott explains that the app “calculates optimally distanced locations” from where your friends have checked in so you can avoid them.

The clip above was recorded by Scott when he took a walk following the path provided by the app. Check it out to see whether the “safe zones” indicated were really safe or not.
