I'm the Android developer on the team. It's been a wild ride so far.

We had an insane stop in Baton Rouge. Police escort into town, drinks at a rooftop bar overlooking the river, and hotel & dinner paid for by the Chamber of Commerce. Southern hospitality is indeed a wonderful thing.

In any case, we launched our 0.9 yesterday. It's very rough, but the full featureset should be arriving today/tomorrow.

Wish us luck as we polish the app up for the semifinal & final rounds!

For those interested in the history of Lemonade Stand, I interviewed one of the founders before he announced what it was (it was previously announced as "Startup X"): http://suratl.tumblr.com/post/3701358675/startup-x-startupbu...

What do people think of the concept? Our main site is at http://lmnd.st/

Also, I'm sure some of you are at SXSW - I'd love to meet up and chat. We're having a Lemonade Stand in about 45 minutes by Trinity St and 4th on the lawn, stop by!

oh. I wanted to do something with this concept, see here: http://www.alittlecity.com/yc/lemonaidstand.jpg

awesome execution, I really like it.

This is absolutely one of the most innovative ideas I have come across in a long time. Elegant, simple, and solves a major problem. Everything a successful startup should be. I'm impressed Nd can't wait to start using it on my iPhone.

So... it's craigslist, but it tells everyone my location by default?

Something like that.

The idea is to make things low-friction, mobile-centric, zero login.

The video and the website don't show how buyers find the items for sale, and how the meetup is arranged. Perhaps you could add a "how it works" section to the website.

Excellent point! We're planning on launching that feature today, and so the materials should be up shortly afterwards.

the API is really good :-) got a windows phone 7 client up and running in just a few hours on friday. Can't wait to see what comes of the service! http://codecube.net/2011/03/lmnd-st-for-wp7/

I definitely love the concept and ease of use. Quick and to the point!

It's such a pain in the ass to sell stuff on Craigslist. Even in NYC.

Love the concept and that you already have an API. Plug me in please!

I love it.
