I sometimes have ideas. Mostly they’re silly or bad, but occasionally they might be worth exploring. I mostly don’t have time to explore, but I try to dump them in this list.

If you’re inspired by something in this list, feel free to use the idea. I am afraid won’t have time to help you. I’m also not looking for feedback, or suggestions, or pointers to implementations of these ideas. Happy hacking!

(If you’re inspired by one of my ideas, and make lots of money from it, more power to you! Drop me an e-mail about it when you have time.)
