Luis Guaman of Interlancompu.com is presenting Find Me & Chat service at Cluecon 2012 (talk: Kamailio as Geo Location Server), next week in Chicago. The service is using Kamailio as communication engine.
Find Me & Chat enable registered users to publish their location and discover other users nearby that are ready to chat. Upon SIP registration, the location is pinned using GeoIP and a list of contacts within 1km distance is returned. Your buddy list is subscribing to your coordinates and get notifications whenever you are in the neighborhood.
The client side can run the mobile application on iOS, Android or Symbian, visualizing on a map who is near by.
