I like to come up with ideas; ideas that haven’t been thought of before; ideas that are variations on present products/services; I just like to come up with ideas. Lately as my knowledge in the computer realm increases, I have been able to start chasing these ideas/concepts by developing them to various levels.
While driving down the highway today in my normal squint along with all the other hundreds of drivers sitting awkwardly in their seats tying to get it just right so the intensely bright sun is blocked behind their rear view mirror, I came up with a new idea. You know during some evenings, you look up into the sky and see the sun… but it doesn’t really look like the sun because it doesn’t seem bright enough to be the sun. Why is that? Is it because some gasses in the atmosphere are blocking some of the ‘brightness’? Or is it something else. This isn’t really my expertise subject area, but I think I’m onto something. Why can’t we harness whatever is making is possible for us to look at the sun and inject that into our windshields (or sunglasses)? If you notice on those evenings, it is nowhere near dark outside by any means, but you are able to stare directly at the sun without even the least bit of a squint. Many times I have to take a double take to make sure it was actually the sun and not an early moon.
I have a few other ideas brewing…
A few that I have already put into play have been:
FlyingPage.com (with Tyler of course)
I’m also working on developing an insert your own caption sort of deal. This would be a community driven website that people would submit pictures while others could put their own captions on the pictures for other people to give the thumbs up or thumbs down on. Firstly I’d like to see if I could develop this concept into a Facebook Application. I’m just on the beginning stages of my PHP development though.
Another great idea my friends and I have been working on is a Starring Arnold website (with help of video hosting through YouTube) We would take various movies and turn them into flash animations with Arnold Swarchenegger playing the lead. I won’t release too much of this idea though ;-)
For now… the brain keeps brewing. One of these days someone will discover my genius!
