Based in New York City's "Silicon Alley," Hotlist covers the social plans of more than 100 million people worldwide, then combines this with each person's Facebook friends, location and interests to generate personalized "Hotlists" of recommended events and places. Co-founded by Chris Mirabile and Gianni Martire, Hotlist takes virtual peeks into places, hours or days in advance, to see who plans to be there (even if they're not yet on Hotlist). It includes event details, girl/guy ratios and Facebook profile photos of the expected crowd in more than 2.7 million venues across 40,000
cities. Users can "Follow" their favorite friends, places and interests to receive notifications of what will be happening among them, then "Plan" their own social get-togethers with friends. Hotlist was named as a "Top 100 Website" by PC Magazine and nominated for "Best Location-Based Service" and "Best Use of an API" at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show.
