Something “Cool” is Coming to San Francisco

SF Haps posted this website promoting some nebulous service called “Hipster. All you get is the cryptic tagline, “Something Cool is Coming to San Francisco”.

As if we haven’t beaten this one to death: What is Hipster? Any guesses? I’m going to throw this out there: a community message board for recovering patients of hip surgery.

I suppose if you’re really curious you can sign up for an invite. Of course, there’s no telling what that email will actually be used for. You may just end up hearing from a lot more wealthy Nigerian princes looking to liquidate their assets.

    It’s a search engine, but the results are all pretty obscure. You’ve probably never heard of them…

    It’s another group-buying site not unlike Groupon or Gilt Groupe, brought to you by http://awesomebox.com/

    She’s actually right. Did some e-sleuthing and found the Boulder version is up and running. Cached Google result here (while it lasts): http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:suTSLVuHsg4J:boulder.usehipster.com/questions/where-is-the-best-happy-hour+usehipster.com&cd=7&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

    Unfortunately doesn’t look that interesting. Or useful. Kind of reminds me of the new Facebook questions feature–dumb.

    Looks like a mashup of quora.com and stackexchange.com with groupon.com and foursquare.com thrown in to emulate some sort of usefulness…
