Who is that person??

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?

Image Aggregator

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. Metadata could be cached locally, images would remain hosted on the source service. The viewing experience could be something like coverflow. Instead of being a stand alone site, ...more »

Photo Sharing Website using Amazon Cloud

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).

When can we meet

Ever try to get a bunch of people together for a meeting, event, wine tasting, etc where you have multiple date choices, and some key people who you want to attend? It's a real pain trying to do this through email. There is a need for a website where you can go, put in a bunch of email addresses, choose the key people, and a few dates, and have the software pick the date with the best match for the chosen criteria. ...more »

myotherskills - listing of all the random skills a person can do (domain is available)

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 »

"Relative Time" application

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.
