I want one!

Great way to bring your hiding place with you as you go and create temporary structures.

Happy spring from the Galvanize team!

We Need Your Help! (Please)

The background:

Hundreds of amazing people are part of Galvanize, hiding gifts and finding gifts hidden for them.

The problem:

The first screens of Galvanize, our log-in and join screens, need some love.

They’re fugly. (We also really want to build the Android version! That’s next.) While we’re still testing and in a public alpha stage, everyone wants to use Galvanize as a real service. This is a wonderful problem, except…

Why It’s Urgent:

We have heard that one of our members wants to use Galvanize to propose on Valentine’s Day. We need to make sure the app works perfectly for the proposal!

How You Can Help:

We’re small (it’s Kristen working on this, with some help from Cameron).

We’re scrappy (we are bootstrapping Galvanize with Kristen’s savings).

We really need a developer that could give us a little or a lot of time. We can pay a little bit + give lots of credit online to this amazing person.

This person could become a technical co-founder, but we know how very busy all the awesome developers always are.

If you know anyone who can do some iPhone work in the next two weeks (it takes a little time to submit an update to the app store, so we need to allow for that), please let us know?

You can send an email to: kristen@galvanize.us

Besides having our eternal gratitude, Kristen will cook you dinner the next time you are in NY! (We promise she knows how to cook and this is a good reward.)

Thanks in advance. Let’s make the V Day proposal happen!

Questions? Thoughts?

It’s like second Christmas! Thanks to Maria (@brainpicker) for the shout-out (BrainPickings is one of our very favorite resources of interestingness) and a big welcome to all the new Galvanize members.
We have been quiet over the holidays because we were busily hiding gifts for our families and friends, natch.
We’re now back at work on the next version fixing some important things (we know the log-in and sign-up screens need polishing) and we have some new surprises for you.
Also: we want to meet you and hide gifts with you in your neighborhood, so let us know if you want a Galvanize block party with your crew.
If you’re interested in being involved as start testing some new features or have feedback in general (we love that!), drop us a line: hello at galvanize.us
More soon and thanks for your support in 2010. It means the world, truly.
We hope all of you are having a splendid 2011 so far.

"Jim and Della live their lives with such a sense of humor (O. Henry’s wit is ever present, even in “Magi”). His nonchalant reaction to the irony (yes, Alanis this is ironic) makes the love story even more moving; she puts the pork chops in the frying pan, and their lives as a passionate couple move on. It’s the consummate illustration of love being greater than the possession, and the case in point of there being a gift in giving. In the age where shoppers line up at 3 am to buy a HDTV at a 10 percent discount, perhaps the story constantly resurfaces to serve as a sort of moral compass, steering us back on course to the “season of giving.”"

~

- from “The Gift of ‘The Gift of the Magi’” in Fast Company

Nice piece, pointing us, once again, at the gift of giving.
