Both Hurricane Party and Forecast are designed to help people be more social offline, said Mr. Pinnell.

“We’re opening the door to more serendipitous connections in the real world,” he said.

Mr. Pinnell said there are currently tens of thousands of people using the service and that roughly ten percent of its users are forecasting their whereabouts  daily.
