Lazy Web ...
- Hi Futurists,
I should read less and post more. I have a bunch of notes from the
Emerging Technology Conference last week but I don't get around to
Didn't know about LazyWeb before. Here in their own words:
Do you have an idea that you think others might be able to solve?
Make a LazyWeb request by writing it on your own blog, and then
sending a Trackback ping to the new url:
http://blog.mediacooperative.com/mt-pi.cgi or by using this form.
At the LazyWeb Bird of the Feathers we were all sitting in a big
circle. Conducted by Ben Hammersley and Clay Shirky who were going
around the room everyone had 60 seconds to explain an idea that one
wants to have developed. Examples ranged from: "I use a spam filter,
which works quite well but still some emails come through. Give me a
little game like space invaders to shoot them down." to "I hate
people taking pictures of me. I want an invisible screen that cameras
can't get through."
The nicest ones where ideas that are solved already. "I want Google
like search for my desktop, files and email and stuff" Well there is
Find, from www.find.com a tool that comes pretty close to that.
A fast typer was able to write down all the ideas and some
apparently are getting developed.
So if you have a neat idea post it on the LazyWeb and may be
someone has developed it already. I love lazy.
All the best, Mark.
P.S. I will be on the road this weekend, no posts from me.
