These guys are doing some cool things with charities and gift cards and could use some help promoting. We could do a Widget, tap into their API and help them promote.
I've always got a coffee/lunch/dinner date with someone and absolutely no preference as to where we meet. I need a Random Number Generator for food. Perhaps it could pull from the Yelp API. In a perfect world you can narrow your search by proximity to an address, keywords (lunch, Chinese), and open hours. Dine-O-Matic, Wheel of Lunch, and A Place Between Us all exist, but suck, because they appear to draw from the same ...more »
Taps into Twitter and Facebook updates (maybe for Hashtags, ie. #GiraffeLabs) to show when people are at a given location.
There ought to be a friendfeedy/dogpile river interface which tracked lots of different sites that mention a company name or brand keyword. These exist for some individual sites already but I'm not sure if there is a
aggregator that pulls from multiple apis.
Buliding facebook apps that push the boundaries of what's socially acceptable. Top 8 friends => Worst 8 friends. Fun Wall => Boring Wall. Woot!
Improve how time is stored in PoorMike's. Not everything is related to a calendar year. Build an interface that allows people to easily store time information using a format other than the Julian Calendar. Add features that are geo-specific. Also be able to capture such oddities as "the start of the year", "after the first full moon", "three days before my birthday", etc. Detect ambiguity.
Tie into something like del.icio.us and connect you with relevant(primarily local) local people with similar interests based on commonality or some matching algorithm.
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.
Rather than listing skills by job posting, why not have a place to list all of a person's skills, even if they are random like translating Greek, playing piano, or being an advanced web developer. Then you could find people with skills by locale, find and match random skills like someone who can compose a song in Greek and can do your website too. Imagine an iphone interface where you could type in 'greek', 'piano', ...more »
A community of musicians sign up and provide info about themselves and their musical skills and instruments played. Other musicians looking to jam perform a search of who's online or send invites to other members to meet at specific times in an online Jam room.
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 »
