It’s basically a mashup of Flickr, Twitter, BBC content and Google Maps and has its own API (documented here). Further info:

I’ll be along a little after the start of the day and am also happy to help out with work on the Flickr API, Twitter API and anything to do with microformats…

- Capistrano task dependencies visualizer.
I use Capistrano deployment tool to install, configure, and deploy rails app, but often get frustrated when I do not know what kind of dependent tasks Capistrano runs when I run one task. I am wondering if there is a way to implment a script or task to show all the dependencies as you can do using rake with “-p” option.

Idea 2 (Ruby on Rails)

-Capistrano task recipe indexing tool or site.
There are lots of people who wrote great gem for Capistrano tasks (eg: deprec, railsmachine), but it’s not easy to find what tasks each gem provide. It would be nice if there is a tool/website to search all Capistrano task related gems, and index all necessary information.

Idea 3(OpenSocial/Google Gadget/JavaScript/Various API)

- OpenSocial App to share your event plan using Google Map and calendar.

It’s a bit like Dopplr(travel online site for frequent travellers), but more focus on your daily event around your home town. It might be fun if I can see who are going to which event all in one google map (so that we might just have a pint a later). It will be a plus, if I can extract data from API, but It might be a bit too ambitious to do them all in one day…

Here are reference urls.

(I also like the better freecycle idea).

It would need to record:
- site url
- rss feed
- site name
- description
- tags

By: admin admin Fri, 16 Nov 2007 15:54:06 +0000 @Mat – yup, I’ll try to link off to everything I can from this blog, and I’ll do a bit of shouting about it on BNM too.

You should bring your mum along, I’m sure she knows some great jokes ;-)

By: Mat Mat Fri, 16 Nov 2007 15:48:53 +0000 @Josh: great minds and all that! Where is this mythical project list I’ve heard you and Dave talk about?

By: josh josh Fri, 16 Nov 2007 15:44:29 +0000 @Mat: i was thinking more to apply the tool to twitter *and* other sites. a project that’s been in our list for a while…

By: Mat Mat Fri, 16 Nov 2007 15:43:47 +0000 BTW I won’t be there tomorrow (me mums coming to visit and I don’t think she’ll be into it) but I’d like to see what people have built. I’m assuming Paul will be putting a list up on here somewhere?

By: Mat Mat Fri, 16 Nov 2007 15:40:41 +0000 @Josh: Ummm, hang on just made that one up as i typed it!

Ok You enter your Twitter name into one field and the site scans your tweets then looks for other people you might be interested in following by scanning everyones Tweets matching words together eg. Flash, Silverlight, PHP etc. etc.
