Is there anything more tragic than locking eyes with the cutest tech nerd at the conference, only to lose sight of them in the midst of all the miniature drones and robot demos?

Long lost lovers of the tech world are in luck. The new service In Real Life, Baby (#irlbb) allows people to anonymously tweet at their Internet Week missed connections.
