A big thank you to Hafeez Bana for this one. This guy is a true rippler, and he can code faster than most people can think! He created the ripple facebook app in just one night (and with both eyes closed). It even tracks your clicks and shows how much you’ve donated. It’s still in development so add it, tell us what you think and send it to your friends to spread the ripple!

Thanks to Ronch and Tintin for featuring us in their hip and happening WebMag touch me. Hopefully people will now be touching ripple at a rapid rate.
One of the questions Tintin asked us was…..what would you like people to do with ripple? We gave the obvious answers…use it, spread the word and send in suggestions….etc, etc.
But when we really thought about it what we really want people to do is own it.
We want people to feel like ripple is their movement and they’re proud to be involved. For example we like it when people send in suggestions for marketing …..but what blows our metaphorical socks off is people spontaneously starting a ripple publicity campaign in their own home town…..or writing a facebook application…or starting a myspace group….or painting themselves blue and running around town spreading the ripple love and sending us hilarious photos…
If you feel inspired…join us. Let’s make ripple the first user generated poverty fighting megamachine….with blue body paint.
Send photos/reports of your rippling to email@example.com

ripple Search has encountered a couple of issues and ads are no longer appearing on the search results page – unfortunately this means that ripple Search is not presently earning money for our charities. We hope to resolve this in the next 3 weeks. Please be patient while we continue to work (really hard!) on it. We will give you a few more details soon…
