There's a ton of nice calendar services out there and a ton of organizations with CRAPPY calendars that don't integrate with anything (like gCalendar and Upcoming). Start a company that charges businesses to promote their calendars on the "BIG" calendar sites.
Have you felt while reading a page or email who this person is or open browser only to cut and paste information to search on them?
Wouldn't it be great to highlight any name on a web page or Office applications and see matching information from Wink, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, Facebook, Google News, Technorati, Yahoo Person Search, Spock, WikiYou, ZoomInfo, IMDB, MySpace etc all consolidated on a page?
Create a Silverlight based image gallery / slideshow that would allow a simple yet slick viewing experience of photos from a variety of disparate services (Flickr, SmugMug, stored locally, urls to images) as if they were in a single album.

A Photo (and or video) sharing website using Amazon Cloud (Amazon Web Services) - there will be no minimum fee for the users - no contract - it is all 'pay as you go' model, which is different than most of the online photo sharing sites (and this could be the positioning message for this idea).

I know people have this on individual sites but I haven't seen the app in Facebook or MySpace yet. I want to look for clothes or glasses, then have the community (my online friends) tell me what to buy. For example, I'm looking for glasses now and have my favorites. I'd share them with my Facebook friends and let them provide their input. I'd make the final decision.
A simple way to commit to a specific level of altruism (financial and otherwise) before you make it big. It's honor-driven but also a public record so you can't be a schmuck if you make it big -- it's in writing! Perfect for startup people and college kids! Altruism is proven to increase great outcomes not just for the recipient but also the giver (my company, Limeade has statistical proof of this -- let me know if ...more »
A website to build a list of people, companies, products that you would not recommend to your linkedin friends.
A website that lets people post a question, setup a time period for voting on the answers. This way a third party can help settle bets. Listen to car talk on a weekend and you see how many times a couple uses the show to settle a question.
