Fantastic Ideas

  • carrotnet
    • mobile hotspot on phone/router (i like phone better)
    • route all traffic through our proxy, replace all images with carrots (or overlap text on top of all images? ads? memes?)

Ideas

  • MongoDB distributed filesystem (gridfs) (http://www.mongodb.org/display/DOCS/GridFS)
    • this exists w/o directory or perm support
    • will bore hapsters
  • vim github/redmine plugin
    • either or, redmine is prolly easier but github is trendier
  • vim firefox extention
    • vim editing in textboxes
    • tie into vimperator?
  • noise level in reviews
    • mobile app that actaully measures noise, sends to us
    • store shit in mongo
    • trends (popular/loud now, not then)
    • (use YQL to actually get reviews and info and shit)
  • scavenger hunt app/game
    • get locations via gps/foursquare/QR codes
    • when user gets to the location, twillio calls/texts them, gives them the hint for the next one
    • keep track of users's times to each waypoint, at the end fastest person wins
    • maybe have points/money, you can buy items that either somehow help you (time bonus? optional waypoints?) or hurt others (time penalty, additional waypoints?)
    • instead of just making the game, we could easily make a framework for this (people just enter GPS coordinates (or whatever), and the associate template for twilio to read at that point)
    • users register beforehand (text in, call, maybe with app on phone)
    • this could also be used for those audio guided tours at zoos and shit
  • rdio app
    • suggest songs that is in rdio
    • master computer will select songs automagically
    • other people go to web to suggest songs, vote songs in and out
    • github.com/holman/play
  • aircrack for android?
    • can the network interface go into monitor mode

Terrible Ideas

  • Fuse github interface
  • Fuse / fs interface to pretty much anything
  • Beef up my resume dot com
