12 Ideas for Web Apps, Sites and Other Things

Blippy for the Browser

In this age of oversharing, what’s one more stream of data? I’m thinking you should be able to create a profile that keeps track of the websites you visit, and you can rack up a leader board for the sites you visit the most…

Radio Acting Company (Podcast)

A Prairie Home Companion has a radio acting company that is awesome. But is that the only one out there? Let’s create another, better one, that you can actually subscribe to in the form of a podcast. I’d be interested in writing and doing voice work for the team…

Online Bus Stop

Where are you going? Where would you like to go? Figuratively and literally. A simple, nice break from the day. Inspired by this Radiolab short.

An Online ‘Moth’

Everyone loves telling stories. The Moth is a great show. But it’s limited. An online ‘The Moth’ could let everyone submit and tell stories, and there could even be shows created live as people went on to waiting lists to become part of a night’s stream.

A network for people who love to create apps, websites and services. The projects people come up with are built through crowd sourcing.

(like Quirky, but for internet ideas)

Key Features:
Project pages, with way to join/follow a particular project
Project pages must have a way to upload information, including designs and code

Ideas for names:
DIMP (designers, idea-ers, marketers, programmers)
Thinkist
crtr (creator)
prtnr/partnr (domain is available for part.nr)
Buzzing Bees (bees work hard, and different bees have different jobs in one big hive)
