2.4 Billion: The Most Obvious (and Brilliant) Idea Has Been Implemented

As late as last week, it seemed that most good ideas for web projects had already been done. Whatever you were thinking of, there was, as they say, an app for that.

Then Josh Miller and Hursh Agrawal, cofounders of Branch, held a hackathon. The result was the most obvious — and brilliant — idea turned implementation.

Every great web entity seems to start with a simple question. In this case, how do the 2.4 billion people of the internet meet other wonderful people?

Twitter? Facebook? Quora? Search? The possibilities are as endless as the internet itself, but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy (or pleasant) experience.

Hence the creation of 2.4 billion. The app is, as all things we love here at Sssimpli, dead simple. Pull up the site, answer some questions about yourself, such as what sites you visit regularly and what you’re interested in, and twopointfourbillion.com matches you up with others from around the world who share your interests. (Note that they need some time to do so- after all, they’re scouring through 2.4 billion people.)

What could be simpler — or more ingenious — than that?
