We're founders http://www.wetawa.com and we're going to be working on a food related app using apis (openid,twitter,flickr,answers etc) and php . If you enjoy good food or enjoy sharing code and experiences with others let me know at akeemphilbert@wetawa.com, or connect with us on http://twitter.com/wetawa or just tap our shoulders we're in the brown shirts with the green "Wetawa" logo (and maybe get one yourself!).

Was thinking of working rsscloud at http://rsscloud.org/walkthrough.html with flickr, or else something with integrating event data from all of your streams.

GroundedPower (open to suggestions) Mike Bukhin - Back end development.  Lately doing Ruby/Rails so that's where I am most efficient. Through my current venture I have access to real time electricity consumption at the whole house level (in minute intervals and day averages).  I don't have tons of data to access (think 10s of people not millions) and i'm interesting in marrying that data with yahoo API data and other interesting metadata.  There's basic stuff like can we correlate energy consumption to weather, or maybe TV listings (is the flat screen on when american idol airs?) and there's more ambient subjective stuff of the 'wefeelfine' variety where by combining metadata with energy consumption we can can find patterns and maybe discover some interest insights into what's going on out there.  I've found energy consumption data can be mined for all sorts of interesting stories.  Electricity is interesting because we only notice it when it's gone.  If you want to talk more send me an email.  mbukhin@gmail.com  thanks!

Brendan McAdams 

I'm planning to throw my time in and continue hacking out a working release of a project I've been working on for a few weeks to integrate Mono with the MongoDB document store.  My goal on a "Rel 1" is to have full support for using IronPython instead of Javascript in the MongoDB backend.  But, I also need a Ruby and Scheme hacker or three (and anyone familiar with any other DLR-based languages, such as Boo)  to lend a hand ensuring support for other tools.  


Anyone with C/C++, .Net (and Mono/Mono Embedding) or Python/Ruby/Scheme (and even Javascript to help with porting the existing standard library) support would be a welcome addition to get a few days of solid hacking in place.



N/A Looking to Join Sean (Xuong) Phu - mainly backend Java development with what use to be a superior skill at Javascript about 8 years ago. Have you ever written Javascript to create MS Paint on a browser? MS Word? What about remotely control another browser (with the help of PHP) - literally mouse movement, textfield, link clicks! Now, imagine doing all these with what's available 8 years ago. Anyone who needs a hand, contact me at dreamywind@yahoo.com
MemeThis Vanessa Sabino

I'm interested in developing a mashup or social data mining app involving Yahoo! Meme.

I'm the creator of MemeThis, a bookmarket that can be used to post new stuff to Yahoo! Meme, which was developed using Java, YQL, oAuth and runs on AppEngine. I'm looking for other Java or Python programmers or people who are able to create a nice front end for the application.

N/A Looking to Join I'm basically open for anything related to software. I'm doing UI stuff using jQuery and lots of backend/web development with JEE and PHP. I 've also used to be a linux sysadmin. Could think of doing something Geo/AR related since I think AR is the next big thing. Contact me at sebastian.himberger@gmx.de


Larry LeFever Looking to Join

Mainly Java back-end developer, but lately working mostly with PHP. Have project underway involving OpenOffice running as a server (for document-conversion), eventually to be accessed from a Drupal instance (but I'm still very new to Drupal). In terms of front-end, just to keep it brief, if I want something centered, I use the center-tag. Know what I mean? Also, recently developed something web-based for iPhone (for Mobile Safari), lets you drag a Google Static Map marker around in the browser (with gestures, of course), and save new location to server, keeps the whole front end in the browser rather than needing a native iPhone app for geoloc-enabled feature. If any common interests, feel free to contact me: larrydlefever@gmail.com

I will be hacking on rxvt-js and the terminalcast recorder.  I am good with javascript, python, emacs, and unix in general.  I am looking for people with experience with design, sound recording on different platforms and generaldebugging.  Hopefully We will be able to record terminalcasts of people hacking so that we can share programming tricks.  You can contact me at paddy@chartwidget.com  .  You can find terminalcast repositories at http://github.com/paddymul/TerminalcastRecord and http://github.com/paddymul/rxvt-js

I'm Paddy Mullen. I would like to find some people to help me with terminalcast.com . Specifically recording sound cross platform, and hacking on rxvt-js. for sound recording knowledge of unix system calls or audio frameworks is helpful. for rxvt-js patience and c/c++ knowledge is helpful. Hopefully we can record terminalcast while hacking.
