... '''Proposal'''

Improved Apache version of "IF THIS THEN THAT"

[[https://ifttt.com|if this then that]]

If you haven't tried it, ifttt is a wonderful service. It will call you if the weather changes,
or send flowers to you mom on mothers day (probably does by now).

'''Motivation'''

My company sends emails internally to sales to notify them of customer changes.
I send hundreds of emails per day and its getting worse. The sales people hate getting the email and
always want them "different", researched, expanded...

 
'''Why is this an improvement?'''

I would like to move to a more PUSH type technology like IFTTT.

I have noticed our competitors are allowing linking to Facebook, opening up a bit to the outside world.

'''What could the project be called?'''

Perhaps it could be called aIFTTT.

'''How would it be used?'''

On our internal or [any] webpage, they would see an aIFTTT-icon.
Click on the icon and you setup the alert.

The cool part is that the rules are flexible. They can get notifications via facebook, email, text, phone, digest.

'''Why do it on Apache?'''

Our company would use aIFTTT if it were an Apache project, probably not so if it were just a say sourceforge or codeplex project.
We would probably sponsor it as well.

'''Landscape'''
I don't know what competitors there are.
