Under the Radar Blog recently profiled txtGroups, a social SMS service that allows people to easily text predefined groups of people (e.g. family, team, podcasting meetup, etc.). Amal is a local Puget Sound entrepreneur that I met at Seattle MindCamp 2.0 a few months back. A genuinely nice guy who helped diagnose a server problem we were having with Pluggd.com in the early days without us even asking him for help!! Well, if that is any indication of the quality of service provided by his company, then it is a winner and worth trying out.
Amal is also a big famous for having RFIDs implanted in both his hands. He uses them to open doors, log in to his computer, and things of that nature. If you would like to have your own fun with RFIDs, check out Amal's book RFID Toys.
