Actually, Jeff Weiner wants it to be something more.
He wants the app to SUGGEST in real time a random act of kindness you could do:
Stuck in a fast food drive-thru line? Pay for the person behind you. Finishing up a meal in a restaurant with a server who could use some help? Honor the name of someone you care about with a life-altering tip. See a barefoot homeless person on the street in freezing temperatures? Offer them a pair of shoes.
While there are a number of sites on the web collecting and sharing stories like this, I couldn’t find an app that makes suggestions in real-time depending on one’s specific circumstances. After sharing the idea, it became clear through the number of likes and comments that there is definitely interest.
So what do you say? Any interest in creating a random act of kindness generator for people who are looking for ideas? The suggestions could come algorithmically or through direct responses from other members of the community. For additional inspiration and discovery, it could also offer a running feed of acts of kindness submitted by its users (with an option to share anonymously).
This comes closer to a Kindness Social Network with discovery targeted to you and your location.
It will require more thought on how to make the app great.
5 key points of AtomicDB
Recently I was asked for a demonstration of our AtomicDB software by a CTO of a large organization that was looking at NoSQL and other DFS solutions in the market today. This person was advised by another CTO that we are speaking with to contact us and hear about what we are doing here at Virtue-Desk.
When we discussed the basis of our technology, and demonstrated by using a relevant database schema he provided, the simplicity of how we work was seen immediately. Once the understanding of traditional/historical “search” queries were a thing of the past and the data was actually clean…the road to change was evident.
For the first time, Virtue-Desk is bringing to market a technology that attains the ultimate goal in data management: a truly associative database model, where each piece of information/data is atomic in nature and can be associated with any piece of data/information, with NO restrictions, NO constraints, NO rows, NO views, and NO cubes. The advantages are numerous and impressive:
The result is unlimited flexibility, exponentially improved performance, and significant cost benefit.
