Brian founded CommendableKids.com in 2010, and continued to serve as President and Sr Developer through 2016. The goal was to help parents motivate and encourage children to be the best they can through earnable badges, and to help children believe that only the sky is the limit for what they can accomplish. Commendable Kids was built during a 2010 world wide hackathon, Rails Rumble, with Brian teaming up again with Steve Pothoven and Josh Hemsley. It finished 4th out of 180 teams, 1st in the US, was named Top 5 by TechCrunch, named top 2 for most likely to monetize by Chargify and was accepted into the first ever Tampa Bay Wave Accelerator class.
Supportyourmarathoner.com was created to allow friends and family of marathon runners to post video messages. Captured through their normal web cam, the videos were then processed by Vitro and dynamically displayed at strategically positioned LCD screens along the race course. Small chips inside the runner’s Asics shoes identified them and sent a signal to display the corresponding video on the screen.
PeepNote was the vision of Brian Burridge, who assembled a team of top professionals in their fields to complete the project for the 2009 Rails Rumble. With teammates Steve Pothoven and Josh Hemsley, PeepNote was created in 48 hours, competing against over 200 teams worldwide and finished 8th in voting. PeepNote was created to help users organize those they followed on Twitter. It allowed users to tag and filter their contacts; add notes and full contact details; export custom lists to Twitter and vCard; receive a weekly report of your Twitter activity...everything you need to stay organized!
