                WeWork. The cheaper communal areas they had were vastly more
                productive and everyone was was respectful of it being a public
                space for everyone to work (for the most part).\n
                The actual offices on the other hand, had almost no sound
                deadening between them, the hallways way too narrow and it
                was all-party, all-the-time. People from other companies
                getting absolutely smashed on keg beer starting at noon was
                a daily problem. At the one building I went to that had entire
                floors of conference rooms, you could hear everything from 3
                 conference rooms over, making phone calls impossible."

    "post_content": "Yes, absolutely, and for pretty clear reasons. I have worked
                     at co-working spaces in Manhattan, Brooklyn, San Francisco,
                     Los Angeles and Portland (Maine). They serve a really valuable
                     purpose in an economy characterized by increasing entrepreneurship:\n\n

                     - very low rent with month-to-month terms, which decreases risk and
                     startup costs for a lot of companies\n- access to other entrepreneurs\n
                     - access (in many companies) to free outside services like lawyers,
                     PR/Comms people, marketing firms, etc\n
                     - programming: members can attend pitch contests, happy hours, meet ups,
                     etc.\n
                     They are growing like crazy not just in NYC and Silicon Valley and LA
                     but also here in Portland, Maine, which just saw one space (Think Tank)
                     expand and another new one (Cloudport) open a few months ago.\n
                     There are **tons** of entrepreneurs and small businesses in America
                     today that have been working for years at home, in garages, or in
                     coffee shops. Now that they have a low-cost, social option, many of them
                     are emerging from those spaces and paying affordable rents to be with
                     others. This makes sense and will continue.",

The Problem
A political organization wishes to monitor the news for all instances of a particular issue they are concerned about. Monitoring articles manually for keywords of interest is not feasible, due to the sheer volume of new posts every day.
The Solution
Intoli continuously scrapes all the major news sites, and provides a WebHook that triggers when a specified keyword is detected.
API Call to Activate WebHook
A POST request to

with the following additional data

{
  "return": "http://<client domain>.com/webhook/",
  "key": "secret",
  "exclude": ["cnn.com"],
  "keywords": ["paris climate deal", "climate change", "global warming"],
  "duration": "7d"
}

starts a WebHook that pushes responses to http://<client domain>.com/webhook/ for 7 days.

The Problem
A web development consultancy wishes to have a list of companies using the technologies they specialize in, and doing this on a site-by-site basis is taking too much effort.
The Solution
Intoli performs a broad crawl of millions of web pages, identifying the technologies used via loaded resources on the page.
