If you're a dev, want to play with Ember, Angular or Meteor an are interested in working on a bitcoin related web project, email me: email@example.com (also email me if you are already working on a bitcoin project :)
I am high altitude trekking instructor and cultural guide for Himalayan region (Tibet, Nepal, North India). I provide no-nonsense introduction to Buddhist and Hindu philosophy, ancient, "primitive" ritual-based religions, tribal culture and traditions.
I am helping ex-addicts, like myself, to almost undo the accumulated damage and to rebuild themselves from within, by educating them in Eastern tradition of self-knowledge (our nature without religious nonsense).
I am also advocating "old-school" understanding-based approach to programming, as opposed to copy-paste-based modern coding.
It's an action-oriented shmup/MMO which feels a bit like EVE Online on steroids.
It is cool because all the game industry AAA developers have been pouring dozens of millions of dollars to copy World of Warcraft for more than 10 years, and they kind of forget to innovate in the MMO field. Making something different and seeing players appreciate it is hugely rewarding!
Also, making a MMO as a sole developer is extremely gratifying as a technical challenge. Doing everything from the website, payment, 3d graphics, networking engine, procedural game content, distributed servers, reporting, data analytics, server monitoring, but also marketing, making video trailers, talking to the press, going to game conventions... well... it's incredibly intense and overwhelming at times, but makes me feel very much... alive?
It's cool not only because it could revolutionize medical research and diagnostics. But also because it gives the world a fundamental new class of sensor on which new applications will be developed for years to come.
That 3rd party lab has an IC that, using complicated, expensive chemistry, will digitize your DNA. Except technically not. There are some 'hot' locations that have been pre-categorized as 'interesting' on human DNA, that their chip will investigate and report back, and isn't a full sequencing of the genome.
Two areas for to compete on are the complicated chemistry, and doing a more complete genome sequence.
My idea is to make a Goal-based system. Each NPC would have a set of goals, and would weigh in available actions as to how closer it would take them to their goals. I decided to start of with something simple like "maximize gold" so the NPC would take actions that resulted in most gold increase. i figured if i did it right, the NPC would themsleves figure out paths in action-trees that would let them make more gold. for example, figuring out that making wooden stuff out of logs is more profitable than selling raw wood. Or that if you can afford it, hiring people to make the wooden stuff (like a business/company) is more profitable overall than doing it yourself (cuz of multi-threading, opportunity cost, overall path weight, etc).
So it would be cool to see NPC picking out roles themselves, forming in-game societies and behavin in line with their goals. heck maybe someone can make a game that would involve using people's goals to influence them
How does it handle logins that popup, eg, Login with Twitter?
To be honest I see no reason why the average person can't add p2p payments into their app or why an accounting software should have to wait years before adding bank syncing.
We're making all of this do-able in a weekend or even at a hackathon.
We just launched to a few live customers last week and already we have a backlog that we can't keep up with, but we're hiring to keep up with demand and we're excited about where it can go.
We'd love thoughts and/or feedback if anyone is interested!
FYI, your signup for a private beta makes it very hard to click send. there is like 1 pixel on the send-button that actually triggers the action.
Oh, and yes! we're starting to cover some European banks and have plans for further European and asian expansion soon too.
Working with life is awesome.
Also, I've never done anything like this so quickly before
Pathfinder d&d based character sheet manager. I got annoyed with the static and excel based offerings out there so I created my own. Currently I view it as near fully featured and want to make it work with more traffic than Heroku can support, but I have no idea how (web-hosting for these types of sites seems expensive as all heck).
Anywho, it was also a way for me to learn flask, bootstrap and knockout.
Why is it cool? Currently 65 million Americans have high blood pressure, more than 380,000 die each year primarily due to high blood pressure, and it costs over 45 billion dollars in direct medical costs. Of even greater concern is that over 45% of those with hypertension do not have it under control. [1,2]
This app will provide instant and ubiquitous information about their blood pressure to everyday citizens without the need for (as many) visits to the doctor, or the purchasing of expensive medical equipment. It will empower the people to take greater control of their own health, and offers the potential to greatly reduce the burden on an already-overstretched healthcare system.
As it is based purely on the phone's video camera, it will be the first time people can use their mobile phone to measure their blood pressure in the convenience of their own home, at a time that suits them, without the need for connecting your phone to additional proprietary specialist hardware.
It's fully functional. It shows live rates, your open & closed orders, your balance and it has the ability to create and close orders.
I think it's cool because Windows Phone is the first platform that has a Kraken app, and this app is arguably the best bitcoin app on the WP platform.
How many downloads have you got so far?
Downloads are in the lower 1000+ so far. Engagement though is extremely good, people start the app every day, and very often. Most of them keep returning over and over again.
I'm pretty heavily involved in Minecraft reverse engineering, and I've started a new website for reverse engineering Starbound. Dissecting the networking protocol, file formats, or whatever else fits in, it's fair game for the site. Come help out? http://starbound-dev.org
Readborg is also tightly integrated with TextTeaser , an automatic summarization API that I created. Right now, it's on beta stage but you can already download it at Google Play Store  if Philippine news is relevant to you.

I had a go of a couple of them and they were fun :)
Normally Reesd first purpose will be to host Docker repositories/images but I needed a nice way to backup PostgreSQL WAL-segments and use the store for log-shipping. That's what scp is used for.
This is cool because my target audience has already scp on their computer so using Reesd is just a matter of providing a SSH public key. And using scp is quite natural in many situations: distributing files to a cluster of machines, WAL-shipping as said above, Vim can open files through scp, ...
The tutorial includes:
-Video Transmitter build
-Video Receiver build
-Controller tray/holder build
I'm hoping to build a tiny 2gram on-screen-display (OSD) module that displays altitude & flight time.
Also hoping to try Flir Lepton thermal camera too, but Flir are probably waterlogged with emails.
With the pick up in the Japanese economy recently I've noticed a few nice comments about it on blogs and forums. Not only is it satisfying to think I've helped people find a job, it's given me the incentive to improve it and maybe find a way to monetise it beyond just break-even AdSense revenue.
I like your design, it's simple, warm.
I did something similar but for all types of ads (including jobs)
I like the look of Oglos. Very clean and easy to browse.
It is cool because it aims to democratize algorithmic trading development using a geek approach.
Algos are integrated with our marketplace http://isystems.com where clients all around the world use them on real accounts for a monthly fee.
If you get in touch tyler [at] codenvy.com, we'd like to offer you a special integration for free that can help your developer-users.
Backups are verified at regular intervals to reduce the amount of trust needed in the system, and every file is stored multiple times.
Eventually the goal is to attach a marketplace where end users will pay for the space they use and those who provide storage will get paid for doing so.
How do you solve the problem of an evil storage node provider who detects that you're trying to recover a file from backup, blocks it and sends you a "transfer X BTC to my account to get your data back" email?
The storage nodes also have no knowledge of who owns the file or what the contents are. Combined with the fact that they'd immediately stop getting paid for the other files they're hosting, it seems like the ROI for one of those evil nodes is pretty negative.
Free video chat using WebRTC for teachers/students doing online English lessons. You can click on a chat bubble and correct your partner's English. The app then automatically color codes and annotates the mistakes. The app will also track your mistakes (by type) over time.
It's re-imagining how you can interact with your codes history and GitHub pull requests. I'm desperately trying to get the installer and docs ready. The installer for Linux should be available this week and the installer for Mac OS X should be available next week.
It started out with me wondering if I could run every street in my city (and not having a way to track that), but I'm growing it out to accommodate runners all over the world.
A huge byproduct of CityStrides is the collection of poly files for cities that I'm gathering at https://github.com/JamesChevalier/cities which can be used to generate OSM files out of larger regions.
This data hasn't been available before now, so it might help create more city-focused projects.
As we think information is the most powerful tool ever, we plan on radically change how we learn and discover music, and that is cool !!
It's been really fun on working on this, and we hope to release the preview of it this month.
1. immediate effect of your effort is always fun
2. spinning something gives you that immediate effect
3. earlier phones were easy to spin, smartphones are like a brick, we wanted to change that.
I invited a psychologist to explain why ~600 users like to have a spiniot on their phones. He came up with these 3 ideas:
- immediate effect of effort gives you a rare positive sensation
- contrary to angular forms circular forms are engaging, when spinning your smartphone, you draw several colorful circular forms
- adults play for the same reason as kids
During occasional breaks, spinning your smartphone gives you a short but fulfilling positive sensation. After that you don't feel the urge to check all the usual distracting sources of procrastination (news, twitter, email...) and you are motivated to get back to what you were doing immediately.
It runs offline, infact it keeps track of network connection changes and informs user if system goes online/offline. In chrome it also runs in background. I have implemented most of the above stuff other than facebook and remote control stuff. I plan to add bunch of other stuff, all I need is more time thanks to college. Anyone willing to invest? Lol.

Because a simple tool to write & share beautifully is attracting a lot of people (+250k iOS users) and generating a different way of sharing text (+600k notes, now 12k daily). Also, technically speaking it's a nice example of technology marriage: the web and the native app enviroments. Android version soon, if you want to test drive, /android and suscribe.
I never got bored in the project. I've designed both iOS and the web applications and also helped to code LESS/HTML and SVG to create the base product and automated many things. It's fun as hell.
It also has more advanced features (http://lnav.org/features/) that are usually only available in server-based solutions, like doing SQL queries over log messages.
Just finished the standard book section. Debating between working on web-based stuff next or periodicals. Web might be fun because I could build some kind of indexer to store the exact page cited at that time, but periodicals might be more useful for potential users.
I just launched a major update with lots of changes to the resume editor. Also improved the DOC conversion and templating code quite a bit.
It's cool because I think it is the most intuitive online resume maker out there that helps the job seekers in standing out from the other applicants through their resume but without actually going over the top with "super-creative" designs.
User-friendly PGP encrypted email as a Chrome app. Open source. Will work with a proprietary mail protocol and eventually with standard IMAP servers too (building on previous work I did with https://github.com/hiddentao/browsermail). Pricing still to be worked out though am thinking of making it Cryptocoin-only.
Why it's great?
Combining performance metrics + powerful exception reports and pure logging into single package makes optimization and debugging way easier than having X solutions in separate places. Works especially well for complex applications.
One of cool features is that we offer access to all data like SQL queries even in free plan - unlike New Relic and others.
Based on the “Disciplined Entrepreneurship” book and framework used by Bill Aulet, Managing Director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, DEToolbox is a set of checklists and tools to help you stay on track, and grow a healthy and successful startup.
We already have a couple hundreds of users and the app is currently used at MIT as part of the Entrepreneurship Development Program.
This app motivates you to achieve your goals. There are 3 twists on my idea however which make it different to other apps. I will definitely be using it myself so hopefully other will feel it helps them to achieve their goals also :)
1. You can build IoT connected apps in under 10 minutes.
2. SDKs for iOS, Android & Node.js.
3. It's open source.
We'd love your feedback, thoughts & comments.

Also, http://apps.goodereader.com which is our android/blackberry 10 app store, over 100,000 apps so far, in terms of sheer amount of apps, we're the 6th largest in the world right now.
I hope it lets lots of people enjoy their music without having to download or pirate expensive software. I have recently open sourced it and looking for help on the project: https://github.com/adaline/mixbolt
http://www.adpushup.com/blog/adpushup-helped-publishers-doub... - This post helps explain what we do, much better.
Its cool because communication is fun.
(I will continue to plug my console email client to http://lumail.org/ because email is cool, and scripting email with lua is even cooler still!)
Our querying ability (no joins needed) and speed doesn't just open up big data and semantic data, but possibly even allows the web to be reshaped as a collection of data rather than text.
It's cool because it allows you to organize your content in files/folders and retrieve it using a rich query language.

it would be great to be able to choose a series of events (e.g. d-day or the Beatles tour in 1967) and see the progression of events across a map in the order they happened.
or to get a cross section of all the events that happened on a given date around the world or in a chosen area.
edit: after exploring further I realise some of this is already possible. again, a great idea!
You can use the time bar on the top to alter the date range, and there are "favourite" era's selectable at the drop down down the bottom.

Launching in the next few weeks for the EU Parliament, UK 1/3 council, London borough, and mayoral elections.
The whole thing is built around integrations with existing services. Today, Asana and Toggl. Tomorrow, GitHub, Google Calendar, and who knows what else!
I am trying to create unique, simple and compact navigation. It's an early version of my page but I'd appreciate all hints, suggestions, directions etc.
Anyway, going to keep an eye out for your progress!
Its main feature is to help you organize projects with 1000s of details in them
Note: it is usable at the moment, but it is not ready
Everything will be fixed in 15 minutes.
It's cool because you can change everything, even program terrain and blocks distribution over the world.
