"Instiki is a Wiki Clone (What is a wiki?) that’s so easy to set up and so pretty to look at, you’ll be wondering whether this is a real wiki at all…Instiki only relies on Ruby—no Apache, no MySQL, or other dependencies(yay!).

"A service which aims to coordinate social interactions between mobile users"
"Pac-Manhattan is a large-scale urban game that utilizes the New York City grid to recreate the 1980's video game sensation Pac-Man.
