I organized the 2013 Paris edition of the AngelHack worldwide hackathon. With 100 participants, it was an awesome experience, lot of fun, lot of amazing projects and people.
Generate dynamic email signatures based on your social services (foursquare, instagram, ...). This idea was developed during the Fousquare hackathon in Paris/FR in 2012. You just have to insert a small block of html.
The trick was that we dynamically create new images with latest user's information so in every email (even the old one), it always displays an up-to-date version of the signature.

2005-2007 I create this online game. It's a very addictive game where you play with other people. The goal is to land on a target but other player can push you so you have to be smart to avoid them.
