    Looking from some solid coders and developers for a project, can you help?

    I am looking for some help on a site idea that I currently am trying to develop. The site is NOT to copy the following sites,
    but to incorporate several features from each to create a social networking type site targeting a very specific market of people.

    The site that I am trying to build is kind of a hybird of twitter, pownce with a little twitpic and brightkite mixed in.

    The site would need to allow "real time" posting of text, or pictures (via a link like twitpic, not in timeline), via a web page, email or SMS, and eventually a cell phone app(iphone, blackberry, treo app). Yes, I know the monthly cost of the SMS number.

    This is also just phase one of this project. There are what I would consider a total of 4 phases.

    1. the twitter / pownce / twitpic / brightkite function.

    2. Video uploading / conversion / posting function. (such as vimeo, youtube, blip.tv of course not to their scale)(video will be added to post via a link, sorta like pictures with twitpic)(video will be accessible on site via timeline or separate video page)

    4. Monetize the site. Quick market specific ads dropped in timelines in a very clean presentable way. As well as pre-roll ads to uploaded videos if user chooses / mandatory on others.

    3. Live streaming video function. (like ustream.tv)

    I have seen Laconica and would consider using it as a base if a developer would recommend it and would want to work with it. If not, that is fine too.

    I am also leery of a twitter / Laconica type database or build because of the downtime issues they both seem to have.

    Tho, I am not looking at the same volume that twitter gets, so this may not be an issue. (maybe there is a better way to serve the time line info, like a email server? or something?)(donno someone smarter then me will have to make that decision)

    I understand that this is a fairly large project and my time frame for the later phases are open. Phase one of the site will need to be up and running within the next couple of weeks.

    I am also looking for someone that is willing to give a little honest consulting time on some of the back end / server aspects as well as the coding needs of this project.

    I am very willing to pay for the help on this project, but am not 100% sure what the total charges will be, though I do have a target.

    Thanks for your time and let me know if you can help!

    This is a huge project, and it would be very time consuming. Which means that a lot of people either don't have the time, or the required skills. Personally, I don't have either.

    You say you have a target. For those willing to invest time in this, why not just say the maximum you're willing to pay? I'm guessing that would turn out to be the minimum for getting involved.

    I am only guessing here and that is why I am looking for someone that is honest and willing to give some consultation.. I'm thinking that for phase 1 of this project I am looking at about $2k?

    If some one uses Laconica then I know for sure it would be much less, since it is some what of a set up "outta the box" kinda deal. Add the mods to make it the hybird that I want, and I know there will be extra cost.

    Then for the rest more then $5k? But again, that I why I am looking for help and people that are truly interested in taking on this project and helping me understand all that is involved.

    Hey, are you still looking for a developer for this project? I'd gladly offer myself. Is there an email address, or another place we can chit-chat about it?
