If anyone's got feedback or thoughts on the flowchart specifically, I'm all ears. If you're actually interested in the product... well, holler.
Oh, also LucidChart is kinda cool.
Just a pretty diagram, showing some ideas for a marine monitoring system I was thinking about a few months ago.
I like it when technical drawings include depictions of something physical, too. Whatever about anti-skeuomorphism, right?
that takes as input a set of people who want to have dinner together at a central location. it accesses their foursquare/yelp/facebook/twitter/google (specifically, recent searches in Maps) profiles, extracts home & work locations and eating preferences. accesses MTA (or other public transit) schedules and looks for available restaurants in locations that are convenient for all parties.
middleground is similar, but seems to take just the location inputs - no social media integration, no public transit.
in the interest of releasing early/often:
i've been thinking about how i manage my schedule and alarms a bit recently. it was originally inspired by Partly Cloudy, a beautiful weather app that i've been using for a while now. i think of time in a circular format, and want a way to organize my schedule the same way. in this way i find Google Calendar (which is my go-to scheduling application) a bit lacking: it organizes time in two linear axes, whereas my mind organizes time in a series of nested, circular axes.
the sketches below show some of the functionality of the app i've been imagining. i won't go into it in detail here, but hope to make some proper wireframes and storyboards in the coming week.
as a guy, i want a simple on/off function, so that i can turn my radio on easily when i'm shaving and have shit on my hands.
acceptance test: there's only one knob on the radio, and when i turn it clockwise, there's a tactile "click" and then the radio comes on to whatever station i have it preset at.
i have not figured out how to keep track of ideas that i'm developing. Evernote is (despite its features) imperfect and expensive. Vesper doesn't really have that many features. paper is impermanent and prone to being lost. Trello is a little overkill, and iOS Notes is as underkill as Vesper without being pretty.
nevertheless, one needs to save ideas. so here, in Evernote OSX screenshot format, is a list of ideas i've been developing.
a few of them are deeply related and will likely be condensed. it's also possible that some will be need to be broken down and/or expanded. some are just tweets, some are soliloquies, some are blog posts, some are just things i mull over or have some indeterminate/passionate feelings about. with any luck, they'll all be showing up here soon.
more to follow.
more to come.
