An interesting discussion with a reader follows. While you're reading, if you have experience with half-finished projects/apps/websites/businesses/etc, please think to yourself, "What would I do?" and answer in the comments.
First off, thanks for making yourself available to talk. I just saw the comment saying you're surprised more people don't take you up on your offer, so I figured I'd send you an email :)
I have a project which has potential, but I'm not sure I can be the one to take it places.
It is a task-oriented team chat application, similar to campfirehq.
Its task-oriented nature sets it apart, because you can make a task as easily as typing !implement history search and hitting enter. This makes it very easy to see who is working on what, and discuss it. The barriers to communication and organization are lowered, helping teams move more quickly, and stay organized.
I've always been a fan of audio APIs / mobile SDKs. For example, if you're watching the Conan O'Brien show and you have the Team Coco app open at the same time, it'll listen to the show and sync up with the show's content, showing the same content or ads on the app as on the TV. That kind of thing feels like magic to the end user, because there's mystery around how the app is staying sync.
But yesterday, Tim, the founder of ShareThis, showed me something that takes audio APIs to a new level, called Lisnr. Although it's marketed as a standalone app, my understanding from Tim is that it's also available as an SDK that app publishers can put into its app.
