Most projects start when someone has an idea he thinks will solve a problem. Then if he’s smart, he’ll try and test this assumption. What if we reverse the model?
An online service where we invite people to come and tell us what they want or need and can’t find (or can’t find anything good or close enough.) When you get many these that are centered around what seems like a unifying problem, do a deeper dive with those people, asking them for more and more insight into what they really need/want, what is their true problem and motivation (emotional as well as functional.) Based on these a more coherent idea can be formulated and then tested more widely. This might help uncover much more such problems and ideas than just starting with a thought.
When you have an original idea that goes against “common sense,” you only need one supporter to stick by it.
A website where people can publish their ideas and invite others who think they are right to support them by saying so. This is especially important if you have an idea that many already objected to, ridiculed, or put you down because of it.
You’re stuck and need new ideas in a particular area of interest.
Select the area of interest or enter a short description. The app will search the web for new items in this field and present the headlines for you to have some external stimuli that might help you jumpstart your idea creation process.
