As previously discussed my API will use an xml feed from Facebook/Twitter to display my current 'status' in a flash file.
Obviously aesthetics will be thought about and will suit the environment in which the API is placed, but another good aspect about this project is that it will enable current potential employers to see what I am currently working on project wise.
As it is all good and well seeing what I have done in my portfolio, but seeing what I would be currently working on is no doubt going to also raise interest.
Great idea. Now onto implementing.
