Cardiff, UK (PRWEB) August 20, 2008
Smynx.com is the latest innovation from Cardiff based internet development company Box UK. Developed using cutting-edge technologies, Smynx.com represents a new generation in social networking websites that helps people find new ideas for having fun, and then motivates them to get away from their computers and arrange to try them out with friends and people who live near to them.
How many times have you been stuck for something to do? In a time when our lives are busier than ever, it's ironic that when we do have spare time we spend most it wondering what to do with ourselves.
Smynx.com is a new social networking website that aims to not only put an end to your what-to-do dilemma, but will also add a bit of variety to your life. Smynx is a place where you can find new ideas for having fun, and arrange to try them with friends and people near you.
Whereas the most social aspect of the majority of social networking sites is allowing you to virtually poke your friends, or turn them into zombies... Smynx is different. It gives you inspiration for things to try, and the means for arranging them with your friends or new people (so you can also make new friends whilst trying something new!). If you have some good ideas, you can submit them too - and watch how many people try them, comment on them, or rate them as interesting. You can even add little sketches to the ideas to really bring them to life!
If you find an idea that you want to have a go at, why not set up a 'try-out'? Want to start a reading group, knitting circle or organise a Sci-Fi convention? Smynx will help you get in touch with other members that share your interests and enthusiasm, so that you can arrange a date and time to get together.
Think of Smynx as that friend who is always coming up with fun and interesting things to do. If you have any spare time or are just looking for something new to try, whatever your age, wherever you live, whatever you're interested in... Smynx has something for everyone!
And now for the science bit...
Smynx is a Box UK innovation and has been built using a host of cutting edge technologies. Smynx uses the Ruby on Rails framework, hosted on cloud computing (Amazon EC2 and S3), with AJAX interfaces, Creative Commons licensed content, and a public API that lets other people integrate the ideas into their own websites.
