The onshore winds and complete lack of swell has been good for development, if not surfing. I launched 70percent.org today to a small group of alpha users. I’ll be working with them to iron out the user interface and bugs as well as incorporating their feedback into the app.
On advice from Shaun Rust, I’ve ramped up the adition of Illness Logging to be included in the initial alpha release. It’s the reason 70 was started in the first place, so it really didn’t make sense to leave it out untill later. The current plan is to break it out into the main site and not to require registration to post to it. I’ve got alot of work to do to it before this happens though, as it could be a spam/localism nightmare.
I hope to be in an invitation based beta release in two weeks so email me at 70 at 70percent.org if you want to help out.
UPDATE: 70 is now logging illnesses users think they may have contracted from the ocean… woot!
