Brian Dorsey has just launched a really interesting site – NoonHat. It’s apparently written in Django (yeah!!!), and the first lunches set up with it happened today. It’s basically a “blind lunch” – you and up to 5 other people that are just tossed together by signing up on the site and indicating a region where you’d like to eat lunch.

I haven’t heard how the initial lunches turned out, but the concept is really interesting and I think I’ll have to sign up for a lunch or two in the future when I’m not feeling so drained of the ability to be an extrovert.
