Today we are announcing a NEW GOAL. We want to implement and run a FREE VOLUNTARY FLAP WEB SERVICE FOR GENERAL USE.
Whilst FLAP is conceived and would work best as a compulsory system we believe it can help users and businesses who are actively trying to reduce their air travel. A voluntary system needs to be easy to use, secure and cheap to run. We are confident these goals are achievable but need help, in particular more software developers willing to give up some of their spare time. If you are interested in taking part please join in the Google Group topic here.
