Intersections + Foursquare = Intersquares
The premise of the show How I Met Your Mother is that in the year 2030 the narrator (Ted) is telling his kids how he met their mother. He starts the story 25 years earlier (i.e. in 2005), and thus far (after 6 years), we've gotten a lot of hints, but we haven't met the mother yet. However, it's quite apparent that Ted has in fact been at the same venue as the mother several times. In a hypothetical world where Ted and the mother use Foursquare, I thought it would be neat if they could compare checkin histories and see all the near-misses that they had over the years.
Intersquares does exactly that: you can sign in with your Foursquare account, and then once your checkin history is processed, another user can sign in with their account, and you'll both be told where you were together (whether you knew it at the time or not). This can be great for remembering first dates or for finding close calls.
