  '''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

  '''Why is this an improvement?'''
  
- I would like to move to a more PUSH type technology like IFTTT.
+ It eliminates Polling which currently dominates news and information on the web today.
  
- I have noticed our competitors are allowing linking to Facebook, opening up a bit to the
outside world. 
+ 1. This speeds up news alerts.
+ 2. Lowers bandwidth on the internet.

+ 4. Being an Apache project removes licensing and privacy concerns for companies using this.

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

a say sourceforge or codeplex project.

+ Definitely not if we had to license it from ifttt.
  
  '''Landscape'''
- I don't know what competitors there are. 
+ I haven't found any competitors. I contacted ifttt.com about corporate licensing, but didn't
get a reply.
+ They are slowly adding connectors like Weather, etc. 
+ A community would do that faster and with more enthusiasm.
