My AngelHack Project, AlertBox, alerts for your social life
Had a great time with everyone this weekend at AngelHack, a startup hackathon with teams from all over the country. I worked on a little app called AlertBox to notify people of important updates from their social networks as soon as it happens. What if you could get alerted when your friend who just moved half way around the world is having a bad day? What would you do with that timely information?
What if we got the right information from our social networks just in time? I think the world could be a better place for it. It’s just a weekend hack, but the idea is powerful. What do you think?
Oh and it’s a python/django/backbone app. Enjoying backbone recently, will make an appearance in my portfolio much more often methinks.
