It’s with pleasure that I announce Daniel McOrmond as the winner of our Fáilte Orchestra competition.
Daniel’s “Irish Orchestra Tweets” entry is a dead simple app that takes the tweet-stream from the @orchestra_io Twitter account, displays them against a cringe-worthy ‘oirish backdrop, and translates them to what appears to be an American’s interpretation of what an Irish accent sounds like.
I mentioned last week that we wanted the “smartest, wittiest or most-charming” app, and Daniel’s entry was most fitting. We really felt that it was in the spirit of the competition: combining some nice cheesy Irish humour with a nice little application of technology. Nice work, Daniel! We’ll see you in Ireland for Funconf!
