Talkshoe http://www.talkshoe.com/ Talkshoe
Dave observed that there is no good way to find, connect with, and talk to interesting and like-minded people wherever they are.
Sure, there are chat rooms, but they often deteriorate into useless jabberwocky.
There's IM, but itís just text. Then there's the phone, but finding new people to talk to is not practical.
Thus was born TalkShoe ó a new way to talk with interesting people with similar interests around the world.
