Brightkite Talks Up Social Networking in the Real World

Ars Technica had a sit-down with Martin May, founder of location-based social networking service Brightkite, a start-up that wants you to find and make friends in your area – and lets you decide just how large that area is.

All of its services are accessible on the Web, but since it’s all about meeting up with people, Brightkite lets users post via SMS and will soon have clients available for a number of mobile phone models.

More details about how the service works and what Brightkite will look like in the future, you can read the complete article here.
