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).
