Hi list,

I'm @ginatrapani, and I'm working on ThinkTank (http://
thinktankapp.com), an install-it-yourself webapp that archives your
tweets, friends, followers, and mentions and makes curating/filtering
tweet replies easier. (It also makes use of Abraham's TwitterOAuth
library, so THANK YOU kind sir.) It started as a weekend project, but
I just got funding by Expert Labs, a non-profit that makes tech for
helping government use social media more effectively--so now it's my
full-time job. In April, the White House will use ThinkTank for their
Grand Challenges project. In short, they'll use Twitter and other
services + ThinkTank to gather and curate public feedback about what
should be our top-priority scientific and technology challenges.
Exciting stuff.

ThinkTank's source code is here:

Here's more about ThinkTank and Expert Labs:

My top API wishlist item is retrieving all the replies to a given

I'm also planning to come to Chirp, and hope to meet you all there.
