    I'd personally love any api that would allow use of voice to text technology. That's a missing component that OEMs are utilizing that we need to use. And of course, if you could get access to fords sync tech that would be killer!

    Any other ideas? Let's get this thing cooking. There's nothing I like more than the smell of a hackathon in the morning. What else would you like to see/do? I'm more excited than when I mistook ecstacy for non-dairy creamer at the office on Monday. Now THAT was a fun day--I sent most of our customers glowsticks instead of M2-ATX's. Chime in, community, let's get this thing going.

    Oooooh... glowsticks

    I am not all that excited about facebook/twitter as I never saw the point of either but I think the idea of a hackathon is a great one! If I become less useless and have an idea to contribute I will.

    I'd love to see waze running on windows and linux! Source code is available for iOS, Windows Mobile and Android, but I don't know if it is possible to convert the code so that it can be compiled under windows and linux (android shouldn't be to far away).

    I think it would be a great addition to the community if we could use this on our carputers, maybe a joint effort could make it happen.
    Failure is not an option...

    I received an email yesterday saying that AKFest was soon approaching! Yet there was no date even in the email they sent out

    I also would LOVE to see an API/SDK....something.... that would allow cloud based speech to text. Google recently added voice searching using the Chrome browser, so may that is some sort of lead in to accessing it.

    As for the Twitter and FaceBook stuff I mentioned earlier:

    We have always been ahead of the game with our CarPC's. It seems now that we are playing catch up with them! Ford Sync has voice recognition for posting tweets, and ability to read back tweets as they are received. These are 2 keys to keeping CarPC's current I think. It kinda sux when someone makes a comment like "You can't post to twitter? I can do that with my Ford Sync".

    ok lets wait for AFK

    as to cloud voice to text recognition that is already there, its may not necessary be in the way you want it but there are companies (cant recall name now) that allow to send in the file and they will transcribe the file, or you can call in and they will record the call and transcribe, they have API for this. This was mostly designed for schools but can be readopted... once my memory will come to me i will post it here... umm Alloha? or something like that cat remember, its phone related

    So, we've decided to not do the hackathon associated with AFKFest 2011. This portion of the event on Sunday September 25 has been canceled.

    AFKFest is still September 24 and will have lots to offer.

    The speaker series for AFKFest will still begin at 10:00am with the car show and Betascape events to follow.

    Rob Wray is scheduled to speak about his 5 favorite iPhone apps.
    Sean Clark is scheduled to speak his experience with both a traditional car computer and the Mimics iPhone interface device.

    As always, please PM me if you'd like to show your car this year. It's going to be good!
    Have a product you would like to sell on the mp3Car Store? PM me for more information.

    Have a car computer question? Ask me by emailing the store.

    What a shame... such an awesome opportunity for people to collaborate, and come up with some useful software and ideas for the hobby. The original idea to put a bunch of CarPC enthusiast in a room, and to work on CarPC specific ideas and software, had so much potential.

    Sounds like a great event at least to learn more about the iPhone.
