This hack was created at [MoDevEast in Washington DC](http://blog.mashery.com/content/awesome-dc-hackathon-usa-today-hq-modeveast). It was designed to be a proof of concept of how you can use the fact that Siri can send emails along with [SendGrid's Parse API](http://docs.sendgrid.com/documentation/api/parse-api-2/) to create your own custom Siri API.
When you are done with this tutorial, you will be able to ask Siri to motivate you and Siri will oblidge by calling you via Twilio to tell you "You are Awesome." :)
I hope that you take this concept to the next level and dream up interesting things for Siri to do. At the [SendGrid Mobile Hackday](http://sendgridmh.eventbrite.com/) a few developers asked Siri to check them into Foursquare, post to Twitter and remotely launch apps on their Macs.
