I want to create a platform for online pledging, collaboration and Big Data analysis.
The structure is basically a bulletin board, where the top level entry is graphically represented as a post-it note, and the comments either within it or more likely below it..
The note should be shareable, pinnable and commentable.
Through semantic and pattern analysis it should algorythmically recommend user's post-its by similarity, popularity, date, and user's social networks.
It should be able to cope with potentially 100,000s+ notes being posted at once.
It should be able to crunch the text data into reports, including sentiment analysis, patterns, etc., and provide rich analytics
users should be able to message one another
Users should be able to launch or plan collaborations across their pledges, perhaps with a Tinder-like mechanism of mutual selection.
It should be an open system, able to incorporate new apps into its API.
It should be customisable in terms of brand and languages, starting with English.
For a basic template email me privately.
Key skills required with evidence of competence (8 examples of previous projects where skills were applied):
*1) Bulletin boards with dynamic interfaces (see www.corkboard.me for an example of the kind of post-it used experience I'm after)
2) sharing, commenting, pinning, direct messaging, etc.
*3) Algorithmic recommendations in the style of Netflix, not only sorting by popularity, date and keywords, but also adaptively recommending post-its in response to patterns of interaction with the website, such as who has pinned the same note as you, what keywords emerge and how they relate to each other as more people write pledges, what notes have received most comments from people you have interacted with, etc. This one is very important. Any examples of previous work?
*4) setting platform in a way that allows developers to add new apps to use the algorithmic data in new ways (also very important).
5) ensuring a website is adapted to mobile platforms
6) allowing for the creation of multiple white labels for the same platform
*7) creating rich back end analytics automated reports
8) integrating auto-notifications, or comments, contributions, etc.
Asterisks are priority skills.
