Fwix is a local information company for developers and media publishers.[1] The mission of the company is to index the Web by location, specifically by organizing content on the Web by latitude and longitude coordinates. Fwix aggregates, in real-time, the news, events, status-updates, photos, reviews, places, and other social media in your city.[2][3]

After a two years internship at Facebook, Daren Shirazi decided to found his own company Fwix in 2008.[4]

Pivot to Radius[edit]

In April 2012, the company announced it had rebranded the company as Radius and changed its business model.[5]
