The social gamification of food: Vote for us in the 2012 SXSW Panel Picker!

Last month we noticed a rapid growth of users in a lot of European countries. And since food is a rather local matter we decided it was about time we started translating all of our local food databases to make adding products easier wherever you live.
'No. They got the metric system, they wouldn't know what the f*ck a Quarter Pounder is.'* And although some of us here in Europe and the rest of the world do, our US friends aren't so used to working with grams and mililiters in their turn either. This is why as of today our American users are able to add new products to Foodzy US Style: In Ounces (Oz) and Fluid Ounces (Fl Oz).
