03:05 <developer-visito> Hi :)
03:08 <developer-visito> I am looking into sourcecode of mapattack. Have some questions

08:52 <@schneidermike> @radiofreegeorgy you may recall @caseorganic from my #CSNE talk. She's a co-founder of @geoloqi, the ones using the Wikipedia geo data.

10:04 <@caseorganic> @pepsico @schneidermike I'd love to run a big real-time location-based game at #SXSW. Any ideas how to pull that off? http://t.co/v8Eqdqkg

11:09 <Wraithan> I am looking forward to the hackathon this weekend so much
11:09 <aaronpk> me too! I'm excited!
11:09 <Wraithan> will be nice to have a focused effort with other that isn't work related
11:09 <Wraithan> s/other/others/
11:09 <Loqi> Wraithan meant to say: will be nice to have a focused effort with others that isn't work related
11:09 <aaronpk> yeah! Did you post more about your project idea on your wiki?
11:10 <Wraithan> just a little bit, I need to write up the rest of the conversation we had on Monday
11:10 <Wraithan> we being reidab, lisamusing, jenx0r and I
11:11 <Wraithan> reidab was super helpful as someone who has used the API a bit
11:12 <aaronpk> great
11:13 <aaronpk> I'm going to work on some new documentation or at least some overview docs talking about the different things the API provides
11:13 <aaronpk> we have a beta version of the streaming API up which we used for MapAttack, but there's nothing online about it yet
11:13 <aaronpk> and there's a couple neat tricks that it gives you that I want to make sure people konw about
11:14 <Wraithan> My friend Sam who is a really newbie programmer will be there as well. Going to try to find some stuff she can do code wise, can always fall back to some of her other skills, she has mad photoshop skills from being a photographer
11:14 <Wraithan> Heh, we determined that we don't need to gather all the points as they come in. At least not at first for our idea.
11:15 <Wraithan> we were going to ask about the streaming API
11:15 <aaronpk> We used the streaming API for mapattack as basically a group chat room
11:16 <aaronpk> That's how all the phones got updates about each others' locations an the coins
11:36 <Wraithan> Oh, that'd be a neat feature
11:37 <Wraithan> Being able to see where your workout buddy is, say for long distance rides or something
11:37 <Wraithan> but I think that should be external to the workout thing actually
11:37 <Wraithan> nevm
11:37 <aaronpk> Phase 2
11:38 <Wraithan> aaronpk: are there plans for something where a group of people could see where everyone else is on the same UI?
11:38 <aaronpk> Like on the Geoloqi website or in the API?
11:38 <Wraithan> say for instance, each car going out to bouncy fun time sends a link and by having all of the links you could superimpose them all on the same map
11:39 <Wraithan> GeoLoqi website
11:40 <aaronpk> Ah yea, I really want to do that, we need to figure out the scope of our social stuff first
11:40 <Wraithan> Even being able to see myself and the person I am watching would be nice
11:40 <Wraithan> as a starting point
11:40 <aaronpk> True
11:41 <Wraithan> always has more feature requests/bug reports
11:41 <aaronpk> Yea, the group API methods are a starting point for that, which is what mapattack uses
11:41 <Wraithan> haha
11:41 <Loqi> nice
11:41 <Wraithan> Nice, yeah, that would a good place to start
11:42 <aaronpk> It's certainly possible to make an app that does exactly that using our API right now
11:50 <aaronpk> Do you want to build using iPhone or phone gap or something?
12:00 <Wraithan> phone gap is a possibility, native apps would be fine too
12:01 <Wraithan> wait, do you mean the group stuff, or the workout tracker thing?
12:02 <aaronpk> workout tracker
12:02 <Wraithan> workout tracker we are planning on using a web interface or layer based html interface for now
12:02 <aaronpk> ah great
12:04 <Wraithan> Native app was discussed as a long term solution
