With CuriPow, Brian Galvin is looking to spread the stories and accomplishments of people of color. Each day, the platform offers a quick look at one story, writes Stephen Babcock at technical.ly.
CuriPow provides some lesser-known facts about the country, chronicling stories from the first Chinese-American movie star, Anna May Wong, and the first African American to run for president, George Edwin Taylor.
Based in DuPont Circle, Washington, D.C, Galvin is working with a team of three. He also spends lots of time unearthing the stories at the Library of Congress.
The platform is built using Progressive Web Apps, which are built to combine desktop and mobile experiences (and be used comfortably in both mediums, as well).
“It’s not a new new technology, but it’s a lot more streamlined, doesn’t carry as much weight and you have a lot of flexibility with it,” he said.
