[extropy-chat] Some ideas... dumped

I think there are a million things you could build right now and that
people would find useful, and some relatively large subset of these
would be commercialisable. The 'net, for instance, is still a fabulous
rambling mess of stuff where everything that is hard to do or hard to
understand or hard to use for people can be seen as an opportunity.

You can see my recent ideas in my blog, poorly expressed as they are
(mostly I have to squeeze them out of my head into the blog so they
quit bugging me and I can think about something else).

btw, it is also my contention that most ideas for doing things can be
safely blurted out in public fora / blogs. Any ideas worth pursuing
take enough work that people wont normally steal them, in fact they
think the idea is crap (I can't see that...) until it is made
concrete. Ideas aren't something people want to grab, you usually have
to ram them down people's throats.
