Interested in finding someone in your neighborhood looking hook up? Maybe you’re the more romantic type and want someone to share a crisp autumn evening with. Maybe you just can’t stand seeing movies alone. Hey, I’m not judging.
“Hookupmaps”:http://hookupmaps.com/ is a new Google Maps mashup that combines a familiar and easy to use mapping interface with the Craigslist personals section. Unlike most mashups which just add mapping to an existing feature set, hookupmaps actually makes it easier to respond to ads with a built-in response form that kicks the hell out of the arcane Craigslist UI.
