programmer and/or architect /co-founder partner(s)
Email: [email protected]

Our startup, almost two years in the making, will be taking the web
2.0 movement from relationship creation (social
networking) to the next natural step–relationship maintenance,
growth, and enrichment, specifically for the 60M couples in USA and
Europe who are unhappy with their relationships and are wishing to
save and ensure, or otherwise revitalize their relationships. And we
will be tapping the almost universal need for connection and stronger
relationships and using that to help stop war, genocide, and save the

The opportunity: to pioneer this new movement (web 3.0? ) with an
application that could do wonders to prevent affairs and divorces,
and revitalize relationships, and thereby prevent mountains of
suffering for hundreds of thousands of marriages and committed
relationships, every year, plus help save the planet and stop war and
genocide as well:

Founder is longtime committed social/environmental activist and wants
his own net revenues to go to prevent war, genocide, and stop global
warming, bring democracy to America. (I am founder of FairElections)

We developed an earlier beta tested prototype in asp, that got rave
reviews, led to some great things, but was not sufficiently sticky,
then blew 5 mo with a poorly supervised effort using an Indian coder
in php. So hopefully this will finally be doing things the right way.

Can be shortterm: 3-4 weeks, and then half time during the beta test,
and could turn into fulltime position (if you so desire) once funding
Estimated time to produce beta: 150 hrs, not counting design revisions

GOAL: We need to produce a beta testable app asap (ideally 6 wks)

We are also open to making parts of this app free to the public and
the OPEN SOURCE community


  1. Core Requirements:
    Generation and validation of roughly 14 forms, with permissions
    ranging from the results being single user accessible to accessible
    to both members of a linked up party (husband and wife)

  2. Some features require 2 parties be logged in at once to read/write
    Private data sharing specific only between 2 linked up parties
    Some graphs based on simple analysis of the forms (to reproduce
    existing functionality; it mostly is simply a 1-1 relationship between
    certain answers and certain graph values … less than 10 data points)

We are not yet funded, and have been using my savings for past two
years. So I prefer a partner who will work fulltime plus on equity
basis; and I can spend at least another $3000-3500 (if can include
design) if necessary , plus
large backend and less equity, plus:

willing to commit $20k from net revenues to fund your own project if
focused on helping to society or the planet.

FUNDING SITUATION: W e are optimistic about getting funded soon.
( We have crackerjack well connected fundraising team–two guys at
google, and one former high up at Oracle.
In fact just heard last week from two strongly interested angels.
Also as former filmmaker and political fundraiser ,I have raised more
than $1.5M for previous projects. (I am googlable.)

and if you continue to stay on past first beta test, giving you first
right of refusal for ongoing VP of engineering or CTO position.

If you get the beta done and working correctly, we are also willing
to make deal to fund your own future programming project if has
strong social/environmental value for up to $20k from profits of our

Ø We were also a finalist in the UC Berkeley Business Plan

Ø Kaiser Permanente already wants to beta test us (they have 8.4M

Ø Already have earlier (many fewer functionalities) beta tested,
but nice looking prototype

ADDITIONAL Requirements:
Able to start immediately and passion to be working on something that
has potential for preventing lots of suffering and helping in other
critical areas too (preventing genocide, war, stopping global warming),
since all of founder’s own profits will go to these causes.
