Rallyhat.com -- Now live!

My side project is Rallyhat, an idea I've had for some time now. Basically, it's a digital photo scavenger hunt with a nice social networking twist. I have a teaser page up right now where you can submit your email address to be notified of when a beta is ready to be used.

It's built using Ruby on Rails. Why Rails? Well, aside from all my soul-searching about what to use, there is a simple reason: I could build it in PHP quite easily, but where's the challenge in that? All my side projects teach me something and I'm confident I'll come out of this as a kick-ass Rails developer, along with learning some techniques I can apply to my PHP programming.

Please visit the site, sign up to be notified of the availability of a beta release and let me know any comments you might have.
