I hope this isn't too off topic and I think I could make somewhat of a case that it relates to Bitcoin since it shows how some guy is trying to get funding for his open source software idea and so I decided to share what I just saw in the kickstarter newsletter:

Quote
Light Table is based on a very simple idea: we need a real work surface to code on, not just an editor and a project explorer. We need to be able to move things around, keep clutter down, and bring information to the foreground in the places we need it most.

Basically it's a very interesting idea for a code writing platform, learn more about it here:

That really got my attention when in the video he mentioned that the smallest unit of code is the function, and not the file. I've been thinking that for a long time.

My thought originally was that we should get rid of files altogether. A hierarchical file system is pretty stupid IMHO. You essentially have to figure out how to categorize something when you create it, and it can only have that one category. Do you classify a song as "Rock", "Good for working out", "Fun driving music", "Guitar", or something else; because you have to choose only one! Screw that, put it in a database and let it have as many keywords as you want.

That, of course, led to why the heck not put code in a database, then break it down into the smallest reusable chunks.

But I'm so over being a coder. I'm working on being an entrepreneur these days.
