Fatbubble is an instant messaging and file sharing client that's all about "hanging out" with your digital buddies. The creators of Fatbubble are major web surfers and IM users who wanted to create a system for sharing recommendations on local restaurants and entertainment in addition to the normal IM and file sharing features (IM tools, browsers, e-mail, and phone service). With Fatbubble, users can check out each other's bookmarks, music and book collections, and social calendars, or find out if any of your friends' friends happen to be at the same party. The company plans to make its services available to PDAs and mobile phones in the near future.
