New site: Upcoming.org

New social network and blogging tools are like shoes–I’m always interested in the latest version, even if I have 5 previous that are amazingly similar.
The latest social network/online utility/ does everything but shine your shoes for you.
The product is upcoming.org, a just-launched online calendar that allows members to indicate affinity with geo-areas called metros, then see a cross-index of events to do that members have entered, and what events their friends or people they want to watch are interested in.
The new site is from LA programmer Andy Baio, also known as one of the f undraisers for the so-called Star Wars Kid.
It has tremendous promise.
