Portland-based location-sharing startup Shizzow took down the Beta sign. Anyone can now join the site and share their location.
I’ve been using the service almost daily since August. Yes, there are other services with similar features, but this is where my friends are. Several times I’ve been in downtown Portland looking for coffee shop co-working and used Shizzow to help me find the hangout-of-the-day.
While it’s missing the snazzy iPhone app of competitor BrightKite, I’m sure that’s coming from developers. And there’s probably a bunch of cool stuff coming that the small Shizzow team wouldn’t be able to create on their own.
My friends at Wired’s Epicenter blog have a great, solid write-up of Shizzow’s launch.
