As soon as I got this, I was properly braced for the forthcoming downsize (at a company I worked for years ago).

It is a broad question. To specify, we'd need to know which jobs you'd be applying for.

From your description, you could almost surely land an intern or junior developer position. Those of course would (hopefully) give you the work experience to move up from there.

The only way to really know is to start putting yourself out there and getting feedback from potential employers. There are just too many variables between companies for there to be an external gauge for "good enough".

I'd just noticed someone created this on my web app http://picsho.com/HYFSbbl1/

I'm with you - I don't quite get this considering the Facebook stance on "fake" users. Was a losing battle to fight? Will they now allow parody accounts a la Twitter?

-----


I'm guessing they were building this for pages which desperately need it and decided they'd roll it out to select profiles too while they were at it.

-----


It only really makes sense on profiles either as a vanity metric or as a way to not have to police impersonators.

Great read, but I believe movie quote is from Bill Dukes, Menace II Society (perhaps Denzel said it too, but Bill made it famous ;) ).

-----


Not that I'm against the concept, but I'd much rather give up my Facebook info than my mobile phone info. I even avoid(ed) giving Facebook my phone number.

While I recognize the phrase "I done this" within the vernacular, I'd not try to quantify it as such.

Let's leave it at fun/quirky.

-----


I think it's disrespectful to call it quirky, especially considering their international customer base.

-----


I'm pretty impressed with the device but I was expecting a LOT more when they started talking about sports. Especially considering that live sports is one of the last bastions of television. Fantasy football and "taunting friends on Skype" is not what I consider an ultimate experience.

-----


I'd really like to hear more about what this NFL partnership entails, also. The NFL is the one thing holding me to my cable television subscription.

I say drop all of the 'Ever/Evernote' references/nomenclature asap, unless this is just a side project or experiment with no plans to become a business.

Invite page needs more description, I can't really tell exactly what it's supposed to do (I'm not familiar enough with Evernote to make a connection

I also recommend using http://betali.st/ to get some early interest.

Thanks for valuable advices.

I've already utilized http://betali.st/ but it takes time. Hope to be listed before Alpha :)

RE more description - maybe you are right. We are in "stealth" mode now and explain everything on person. For Alpha we are working on complete landing and tour pages.

RE using "Ever" word. This is interesting point. It is coming from "everyhour". What difficulties you think we could face?

> ...This is interesting point. It is coming from "everyhour". What difficulties you think we could face?

IANAL but... If it's coming from "every hour" then go with that. You reference the Evernote inspiration in your description above, the tagline on the site is "Evernote for time", etc. Saying 'it's evernote for time' is great for elevator pitches, less so for product wording. But because the product is called "Everhour", I'd either a) start looking for a new name or b) pretend (at least in public) that I never even heard of Evernote. If not, at best you'd be labeled as a copycat, at worst, face some legal issues for encroaching on their trademark[1].

Thanks again for great advice and valuable reference. We will have a look and make sure we do not violate any rights.

burpscroll.js would be an easy fork
