This unfortunately went the way of most startups. Lessons learned: start small, get it out fast, do it with someone else's money. :-(

Tahoe Social was a startup to create a social search engine for the Lake Tahoe Basin, including South Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Kings Beach, Tahoma, Tahoe Pines, Tahoe City, Incline Beach, Glenbrook, and Stateline. The goal was to create a ‘one stop shop’ for everything a visitor to the area might want to know including business pages and reviews, travel information and arrangements to hiking and recreation guides. Smaller micro-sites within the main site were developed for each community, and local businesses could claim their own set of advertising pages.

The Tahoe Basin is an interesting area, both for its raw physical beauty and for the local culture that has sprung up in that isolated environment. The Basin is a world unto itself, and even within that the California side and the Nevada side have remarkable differences. Even though this project ended before we could launch, it was very enjoyable to learn about the area and the various communities within it.

Built on Liferay portal CE with a companion mobile site built on Sencha and backed by Mongo DB. Quick shout out to Chris Stavros at Omegabit who was great to work with for our hosting.
