BaconTwits

So, a couple of weeks ago Phil and I were joking around about bacon. (It’s a pretty common occurrence these days.) We came up with the idea of  raising money for a .bacon TLD (e.g. iaccidentallythewhole.bacon). Out of nowhere he suggests: twitterbacon.com. I thought it was brilliant. I got the domain. I started working on a site by myself, but couldn’t quite get it the way I wanted (or find the time to devote to doing it). So, I asked Emily Lewis and Jonathan Delaigle for their help. I came up with a design. Emily got the design implemented. Jonathan made it work.

Without further adieu: bacontwits.com

At some point in the near future, it’s our goal to package the site up into something others can take and build their own mashups from. Once we’re ready to release, I’ll make an announcement here, on BaconTwits and on Twitter.

Enjoy!

API Mashup

Wouldn’t it be cool if someone came up with a way to get CampaignMonitor and Basecamp to communicate? We use both of these tools in our day-to-day operations. We use Basecamp to manage all of our projects, and with each project we have a number of contacts listed for each of our clients. I’d love for their to be some sort of automated way to make sure each of the contacts we have listed in Basecamp are also added to a mailing list within CampaignMonitor… Not sure if anyone has done this sort of thing before, but I figure since there is an API available for both apps, this is surely possible.
