From Music Hack Day
 About Jamvalanche
We’re part of the team that made This Is My Jam. We created TIMJ because we’d grown tired of the incessant, oppressive barrage of tweets and status updates; great music was getting lost in the deluge. So we built a new home for your favourite song, one that encourages you to slow down, choose carefully, and listen to songs from friends fully and repeatedly.
Jamvalanche, on the other hand, won’t have any of that touchy-feely bullshit. It watches Twitter for mentions and links to jams in real-time and turns them into an oppressive, incessant barrage of autoplaying musical updates from people you don’t even know. BOOM!

 What APIs, tools or kit did you use?
- This Is My Jam beta API (with Marmalade)
- Twitter API
- Freesound (for the gong!)
- Some other hastily pulled together bits (Soundmanager2, HTML5 Boilerplate, Youtube, etc etc)
 Anything left to do
- It only works on desktops/laptops (no mobile sorry), and only in latest versions of Chrome and Firefox. Pesky websockets. Pesky flash. Etc.
