Exactly! I totally met this doofus when I was looking for a new car the other day. I went on the VW lot, and was like, "Hi. I'd like to buy this Jetta. Can you tell me the precise metallurgical composition of the transmission synchro assembly, and perhaps construct a representative molecular model out of these?"


Dude was totally at a loss. I just laughed and walked out after taking a free doughnut.

Very cool. Lots of integrations. Will you have an API for programmatic collations, i.e if one wanted to do serverside zip creation?

Thanks,

But no API, though we are contemplating the best way to move forward with that... There are allot of IP and trade secrets in play.

I was so impressed by your idea I had to try it. To my suprise not only did the salesman pull it off, he told me of his successful recreation of the origin of the universe at his previous job at Cern. Now he was ready for a more challenging position at VW. Needless to say I now drive a passat.
