+ '''Proposal'''
+ Improved Apache version of "IF THIS THEN THAT"
+ [[|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.
