Announcing Tricycle

Posted 9 March 2008 in tricycle

When Mat Honan's website Barack Obama is your new bicycle launched, it spawned a number of copycat and parody websites. I thought, "Hey, there might be people who don't have the ability to write their own software, but would enjoy having their own is-your-new-bicycle site." Thus, I wrote Tricycle.

Tricycle is a simple way for anyone to host their own "is your new bicycle" site. Just download and copy index.php into your directory. Modify the settings and you'll be all set.

Tricycle is licensed under the GNU AGPL version 3, so it is 100% free software. Check it out!

Update - Check out Tricycle in action over at Dave Woods is your new bicycle!
