Geeklist offers developers an online haven to present their work, connect with other developers, and gain credit for achievements. Geeklist's lean staff proudly states that Geeklist was "[b]uilt by developers, for developers... we make geeks lives better every day." The API allows developers to create their own applications and services and retrieve any needed data from the Geeklist database. The API has remained in private beta since the Geeklist's original launch, but will open to the public with a 48-hour hackathon from November 30 - December 3.
First impressions are pretty key, right? Especially when it comes to dating. When meeting someone for the first time you have the opportunity to size each other up, say your bit; all while acting on your best and most charming behaviour. But what about meeting someone online?

In this case, it's probably a good idea to make sure that the photograph and profile are working in your favor. That's where the Perfect Dating Profile API comes in.
