Ideastorm

Imagine if one person shared the ideas they have but will never pursue - things that could improve their lives, or humanity as a whole? What if everyone did?

From apps and websites, to the tools that developers use to create them, to science fair projects, crafts, or cool food ideas - the possibilities are endless with a collective hive-mind of potential that anyone can contribute to.

A few years ago, I outlined this vision in more detail. I have since ported that over to this section of my personal website - where all ideas, big or small, are welcome.

What's Your Idea?

Share your awesome idea with future visitors of my site.

A better browser : What if there was a better way to access the internet? 1) Replace the back button - sometimes you have to click "back" 10 times and that's bad UX. 2) Add recommendations - sorta like YouTube, what if the browser was arranged as a network instead of hierarchically. 3) Jump straight into the first tab (speed up results).
