http://techcrunch.com – At the TechCrunch Disrupt SF Hackathon, a presentation on stage was very polished and caught our attention. Advise.ly provides peer-to-peer career advice on demand. It uses both the LinkedIn API and the Twilio API to first find people with the same career background and then initiate a phone call. The site is already live and working, which is impressive for a 24-hour hack. First, you authenticate with your LinkedIn account and enter your phone number. It then uses your LinkedIn information to find close matches on the service of people who help you when you are at a turning point in your care (IT news)
