[Chicago] Chance to try out AppEngine (and make my life easier)

A great idea, but there's a neat opportunity here. A site called nextbus.com
will tell you when the next bus will arrive at your corner. It does this for
a number of cities/areas, including PACE. No integration that I know of with
the CTA or Metra, but busses have GPS.

This sounds like a great idea; I'd love to help out!


As it happens, I don't have a github account, so if you want to pass an
invite my way, that'd be awesome.

Well, it seems there is an ability to invite developers to collaborate

with you on an application.


I've been planning for a while to create a better interface to the

Metra train times (metrarail.com). I'd like something with Twitter

integration (so I can ask from SMS what the next train is) and a

smarter ability to search (remember my stations and only show me

upcoming train times for the current day of the week by default).

I've started working towards this in Django but it seems like a

perfect excuse to to start doing some AppEngine work. Let me know if

you'd like to help with this and I can try to add you as a developer

to the project (you'll need Git for this, I have 2 GitHub invitations

left if anyone is interested). Also let me know if you have any other

suggestions or ideas for the project.

Completely unrelated but, you have the ability to restrict

authentication to your Google Apps domain. This means it is possible

to create (and perhaps resell) applications designed for internal use

only and integrate it into the existing Google Mail, Docs, etc.
