Seeking Developers and Designer

Uncle Sam Want YouI am working on a large project with a good potential future and am seeking a couple of developers and a designer. If you want to work on a cutting edge, dynamic, fun & interesting application with the possibility of a broader future, then let me know. There is a prototype done, but I am looking for some help in getting the features all complete and ready for public roll-out.

More specifically, the application is a server/desktop/mobile hybrid, and deals with a lot of items that have come across this blog. Think along the lines of Plazes, Platial, MobilePlay, Mologogo, and my own Travelogue.

There are 2 developer spots:

  • Ruby/Rails, web development
  • J2ME/Python for mobiles

The designer should be versed in web design methods, CSS/XHTML, User interface for desktop and mobile apps (or willing to quickly learn).

If you're interested in finding out more and helping out, please email me at Please include references to some other projects, code, or designs that you've worked on.

(By the way, anyone from any country/time-zone/culture is welcome, despite the "Uncle Sam" personage. I just felt he embodied the message: "We want you!")
