  • The user should be able to select a particular week from a calendar picker and use that as the week range to get data from.

  • Checkins for events should have those event names get high priority.

  • Possible name change?

  • Pass venue icons from back-end to front-end (and probably scale them up or use smaller album icons)

  • If we exhaust every possible search term for a track, there should be a placeholder, which should probably be 4'33".

  • users should be able to optionally provide their usernames instead of logging all the way in, or opt-out of authentication entirely and just get a playlist

  • Finish the playlist creation bit for logged-in users

  • I should shamelessly rip off (with credit) the drag-and-drop Spotify creation method which Spotibot uses.

  • Better yet, I should be able to create a playlist in rdio, since they have a better API.

  • We should look for badges earned during the week and bubble them up


  • Publish weighted list as its own library, with unit tests and the like (it's up at js-weighted-list)
  • I may need to develop some sort of weighted-probability thing for javascript, since I have several cases where I need to choose between several alternatives, I want to prefer some outcomes, and the complete set of possible outcomes is not know beforehand.

  • In general, the server should perform and foursquare authentication and then pass those values to the front-end. The front-end should store them in a session cookie. User-facing URLs should display conditionally based on the existence of these cookies (I'm assuming no CDN caching for now).
