About the Winning Hackers
When a friend travel to other city or a country, sometimes you want to have some things that only sell there. For example a leap motion in USA, or Nopales from Mexico. So you are going to be able to see the travels that your friends are going to make and request them to bring you something. You request something and pay the item price trough pay pal, your friend buys the item and once your friend come back you are going to receive the item from your friend.
Help and be helped through a mentorship program as a service, by using realtime virtual classrooms. Information that is generated in the platform is organised by using web semantic technologies (such as RDF) in a way you can link this data with the one that is already published in Linked Open Data (such as the information of DBPedia) by doing this, the platform can automatically answer your questions with concepts (or ideas) instead of documents like traditional web searchers. Mentors earn money from students through the classes. The objective of the platform is to keep students in schools as we see education as a problem in Mexico.
We found that more than 45% of the people in the country aren't Internet users. A lot of people without access to the internet won't afford a data plan or a smartphone in the short or medium-term. We developed a web application where users can sign up with their phone number, and connect their social networks, web services and most used websites in Mexico to receive notifications via SMS without needing a data plan or internet access. We are connecting the unconnected yet.
