Akoha unveils at TechCrunch50

  • 10th Sep, 2008 at 3:28 AM

I haven’t posted here for months. Not that I haven’t wanted to, but I’ve been working very, very hard on a very, very cool project.

Akoha is our little game that aims to change the world, one good deed at a time. I haven’t been able to tell people what it is, and so much of my life that been dedicated to this project, but it’s been totally worth it!

We’re a TechCrunch50 Finalist, which means we get to go on stage in front of thousands of people and unveil our little project. And we think you’ll like it.

But it is a little stressful.

The whole team has worked night and day to make our little experiment come true. It’s not perfect, but it’s not done. With your help, we can make the world a better place, a bit at a time.

How can you learn more? You can read our blog, follow our Twitter, or join our Facebook page.

You can also watch us on stage this afternoon.

We just sent out our press releases so you’re free of the FrieNDA! Go forth and blog!

Yay, I can start including other people now. :-) I really need to find a bit of time to devote to it.

All very exciting. You must be thrilled.

We are!!!

I gotta say, I am very much looking forward to getting my "mystery starter kit".

It is too bad that you guy filled the Unix Pipe Fitter job when you did -- or more specifically, too bad that I was away when it was posted and missed the chance to send in my CV. Akoha looks like a fun place to work.

Alas, it is a fun place to work.

I should know, I haven’t stopped in months!

You guys really need to make a clear, simple intro page. I was surfing around akoha.com last night, and all I could find were news posts that expected you to already know what's going on.

All I can figure out is that it's some sort of game involving social good, which makes me think of freerice.com, but I have no idea if I'm jumping to conclusions. Until your post just now I'd never seen "game" and "good deeds" near each other on your site - just a bunch of pages talking about "changing the world" and a separate page that mentioned it's a game.

Oh, you added a comic that wasn't there last night. That's what I was looking for.

That’s right. We were under embargo by TechCrunch50, so we couldn’t release any details about the product until now.
