|Multilingua||Oakland has many immigrant groups speaking fairly "exotic" languages like Khmer, Hmong, Yemeni, Eritrean, Tagaloc, Ilocano, Mixtec, Zapotec. Could someone build a good CMS that enables members of this community (and those outside of Oakland) to crowdsource translate support guides on a mobile website?||Romy Ilano|
|Green Soul||Eating healthy doesn't mean you have to give up your culture. Mobile web and PC web app showing healthier versions of Filipino / Mexican / African-American traditional dishes. Tie it into a point system integrated into users' churches so that they can share their transformations every Sunday. Inspired by the vegan Filipino restaurant No Worries.||Phonegap, Ruby?||Romy Ilano|
