FavoriteThing.Me (project Val) released! Celeb status

Another big release! FavoriteThing.me Dan, Ajay and I were inspired by threewords.me and behold we were noticed by the creator (Mark Bao) of that site! He even registered! I am so excited and on top of that we made front page of hacker news! But Mark commented and brought up HUGE issues and opportunities to improve the site: making the user registration flow (and thus viral coefficient) much better, and making the site look nicer. We need to work on that. But first. Homework. Then sleep (or not) then class then track then lift then football then more homework. Then hacking.

HW or Hacking? Introducing AreTheyChamps.com

[caption id="attachment_60" align="aligncenter" width="730" caption="source: aretheychamps.com/"] [/caption] It was another one of those days... Did not get too much school work done, but got a lot of real work done. Worked on Project Val and made signifigant progress. Very excited for that. Then about 30 min before the Super Bowl, I asked Ajay if he wanted to work on something. I thought it might be cool to do something like IsItRaining.In/ but for the Super Bowl. After having a creative brainstorm session, we came up with something cool that so far has around 1,000 hits. We call it: AreTheyChamps.com Hopefully, we can reach that sought after "Bored At Work Network" tomorrow. Will let you know. Night.

New domain and a new project

[caption id="attachment_32" align="aligncenter" width="706" caption="source: shh.. it's a secret"] [/caption] Why am I up so late? I just bought this new domain (wesleyzhao.com) and had to make a couple new additions before I went to bed (added the tweet button [click it!], an about page, a projects page, and a bunch of other stuff too). But also, Dan and I have been getting started on a new project (let's call it Project Val). We made some great progress on the design and the front end and also made a big dent in the server-side stuff as well. On top of that, I learned how to deal with 'sessions' in php. I'm very excited for Project Val, and we really have high hopes for it. Email me or leave a comment, and I'll make sure you're one of the first to know when it's out.
