This project is to build a comprehensive DEMO platform (Stage 1) -- ie. non-fully functional representation of a niche social networking platform showing form and structure, expected interface and anticipated capabilities, a CLEAN design, and the "flow" of interaction/interactivity.
While full functionality is not expected, the demo MUST be built to allow the eventual development and integration (Stage 2) of complete back-end functionalities (MySQL/Oracle, etc.) and Web 2.0 capabilities (real-time IM, streaming audio/video, mobile/handheld capabilities and other advanced interactive features).
We require PROFESSIONALISM -- NO AUTO BIDDERS, NO RECRUITERS. We will need to assess representative work (show us your chops) and get references. We are Mac minded and prefer working with like-minded developers. We are US-based but internationally focused, and would encourage design feedback that leverages such perspectives. Ideally, we hope to find a developer able to see this Web 2.0 venture through ALL its stages. Regardless, the design must be open and portable.
We're happy to work with qualified candidates during this process , but let's not waste each other's time. Please, REALISTIC BIDS and SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY -- and if you feel we're not being so, tell us. We would consider ourselves extremely lucky to find someone who shares this venture's vision. While not required, if the idea of advancing a popular social activity you're passionate about (NOT anything obscene or risque) while disrupting traditional distribution in legitimate ways speaks to you, let us know (in private) your interests and/or favorite pastimes, and we'll determine if there's a fit.
Thanks for your time.
