This is an idea for a website whose purpose would be to promote and evaluate ideas from people all other the world.

You have a great idea that you want to promote, you just enter it in a textfield on the website frontpage.

Exemple:  your idea is "flat tax".  You just enter it.  You don't register, you don't login, your don't do anything except entering your idea.  If this idea is already in the database, then nothing more is done.

On the front page, you can also search for ideas with keywords and you have a list of « popular » ideas.  You can vote for an idea with you CPU.  Using javascript crypto module such as the one used on bitaddress.org, visitors can chose whether an idea "rocks" or "sucks".

So a visitor visitis the "flat tax" page.  There are two big buttons: « this rocks», «this sucks».  If he presses one of them, his computer starts hashing proofs of work and he gets a real time count of the amount of proof of work he's adding.  At anytime he can make it stop by pressing a « Ok, that's enough » button.

By doing so, maybe we can get an idea of what people of the world really want.  It can also be a way to promote and diffuse neat ideas quickly.

I used to be young and think that idea sharing/depositories like "shareideas.com" or some similar concept would be a good idea and then I got into business and realized it's pointless.

If you have an idea, make it work.

If you have an idea and share it openly in public, someone else will make it work and you'll get jack shit.

Do the math.

EDIT: And for people saying "Oh, Matthew. If we acted like that, nothing would ever get done! Sharing information is caring!", I say to you "Sharing money making ideas with individuals in an incubator environment where there is trust is fine. What if Paypal had heard of Bitcoin before you, adopted it, and made it evil by developing it and marketing it as a controlled version of itself? This strong community we have now would never have existing in its current form, and IF anyone wanted to try to develop against it, they would have seen it as "more of the same" as we currently do for alt-chains.


Keep spreading ideas people, but do it with people who fucking know how to make those ideas work.

Case in point: the author didn't even register the domain he's proposing.



So what if I register it and it takes off? If the author doesn't care, that's one thing--- but looking at his post, he seems to care, and why shouldn't he profit from the site?

Amateurs.

I don't care at all if someone else does it.  Actually, that's part of the reason I posted it here.  If someone think such a site could be cool and actually implement it, that's all good!  I don't hav technical skills (especially in javascript) to do it myself anyway.

If he earns a lot of money doing so, he would totally deserve it, since as you perfectly point it out, it is one thing to have an idea, it is an other to actually make it come true.  And I believe money should go to the person who makes it come true.

Personnally, I would like such a website to exist.  Whether it is me or someone else who creates it doesn't matter.  I would benefit from it anyway, at least as a user.

Also, it would not just about ideas, but also about people.   For instance, one could enter "Lady Gaga" or "Justin Bieber".  I believe it could be fun.

PS: To tell the truth, I'd even prefer that someone else does it.  I am that lazy Smiley

I should hang out on internet more, instead of always visiting the same websites Grin
