Reciperocity is a response to creator Erin Brown’s (pictured right) love of cooking and potlucks. It has a two-fold mission, to help people more easily and seamlessly organize potluck events and to find, store and share recipes.

Inter-I isn’t live, but it’s worth mentioning because it’s so dang cool. Its founder Josh Tarkington exported 40 gigabytes of Wikipedia data (that’s about 40 percent of the entire site!) and created a way to search an idea and pull up topics that relate. The site will eventually help people find things based on context.

Minter’s response to that project?

“Black magic.”
