I attended CVC demo night on Wednesday and there were some really good tools being developed by the Columbia grads. The highlight for me was these three tools-
1. Readfa.st - Readfa.st is a web-based educational platform for teaching people to read faster. They integrate a simple and effective speed-reading curriculum into your daily reading, and keep you engaged through social and gaming elements
2. Grovo (www.grovo.com) - Grovo is an online educational and training platform that helps people use the best websites quickly and intelligently
3. WuzTasty (www.wuztasty.com) - WuzTasty is an iPhone application that helps people decide what to order at a restaurant by allowing users to view and share reviews for menu items as either "thumbs up" or "thumbs down"
I requested an invite code for Readfa.st, let me know if anyone wants to test it out.
