    Amazon says they will take weeks to come up with a Ruby SDK..
    So I guess we will just wait and then ask users to use the old system.

    @fariliang
    I finished the review system and added more social media buttons.
    How is your side?

    The latest push has a working mobile login page. You can also see it in your phone.

    Nice, I wasn't feeling good the last few days i'll try to work for more mobile implementation tonight.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    Dont' worry, get better first, drink more water. I also found out that the mobile template still have some places that don't work. I will work on it tonight and make it look like Ratafire. I have to go to an event about how to get tech journalists to write about us... hopefully I get to know some journalists.
    Colin, the pianist just showed me an email: "Hey I just saw some of your work and really liked it. I've started a page where people can present their art. It's a new platform but I'd really like to add you. Would you meet me briefly, so I could sign you up? I really think www.ratafire.com would be a very helpful tool for you." I think we should use it...
    It sounds so nice and natural... I can see why he can get an audience and I can't -_-
    Can you write him a short review on his project? https://www.ratafire.com/colinchromatic/6644863

    Do you have time Friday afternoon at 3pm?
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    Probably not sure yet, how is your event.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    It was ok. I am both coding and emailing artists today.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    I will email the marketing person tomorrow to see if he is still interested. He is a student at NYU, so we can try to see if we can meet at the lab this Friday.
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    Did you told he won't get paid till we get funded? otherwise its a wast of time don't you think?
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    Yes. I told him so. He is not sure yet we are not sure yet, but we can try to hang out.
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    ok
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    I just got back from an event and someone told me a very good idea that can probably get this off the ground.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    It is an interesting idea. I can't wait to tell you tomorrow.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    Anyways, let's meet at the lab at 3pm tomorrow.
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    I like your new photo by the way. i probably be available after that as right now i'm working o a code challenge for a job.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    Ok.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    Ok, the meeting is canceled.
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    He is not interested?
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    Yeah.... I am contacting another person.
    There is good news though.
    There is a blog that is going to write about us.
    And I am meeting several pianists next week, to convince them and let me tell you what that good idea is later tonight after I am back from talking to people.
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    Sure
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    So it is like this. The person is someone who created a startup for freelance people to find jobs.
    He said, to solve this market place problem, what he found out is that he has to find the clients first, not the freelancers. He said that for Ratafire, we should talk to the fans first because for the artists, to play for their fans is their dream.
    So I come up with something like this. To create pages for artists we or others want to find, and then send these pages to their core fans and ask the core fans to distribute them to other fans. People can click that they want to see this person on Ratafire with a patronage style of service so that fans can support them in this fashion and have them work on more projects for fans. We say that if we collect 50 yes, we will send the artists an email on behalf of the fans, to invite them to Ratafire.
    What do you think about this? With this we can go viral.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    I talked to an artist this afternoon, and he is going to help us in sending emails in NYU's art school email list as well....
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    i don't what you mean create new pages for artist, do you mean profile or bio page?
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    Suppose it looks like a short bio page.
    And then with some introductions and work, with the petition function that you can click through Facebook, to say that you want to see this person there working on what you do, and allow fans to connect with them like this.
    And then we will automatically send this person an email, when it hits more than 50 people click yes.
    In the email it will say that this list of people want you to be there.
    In the past one year what I experience was that it was so hard to convince the artists. It usually takes 3 months to have one that post something of value. Now I think we should try to make them an offer that they can't say no to.
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    That's makes sense
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    It was when he said that to play for their fans is their dream, or was their dream. I think that is brilliant.
    And then I came up with this plan.
    Sammy khaleel
    @Sammykhaleel
    That's comes to growth hacking as i told you before, it's about finding where these fans are in the internet such as facebook groups, twitter and such..
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    I agree.
    We need to find the exact category to start as well. I have several ideas in mind, and I will write it into a metric and then show you, but I am not 100% sure yet.
    Fari Liang
    @fariliang
    Will send it to you early tomorrow morning for I must sleep early tonight. I have been talking too much these 2 days to people and my voice broke, and the only way to cure it faster is to sleep early.
