  • posted GetAround, but for renting pickup trucks.

    Sometimes I need to rent a pickup truck, but the place I need to go is a long way away from the nearest Home Depot with truck rental service. It would be nice if there was a service available where anyone could rent out their pickup from wherever it's currently located.
  • posted Intelligent Social Media scanning service (driven by machine learning AI?) that if you give it a small amount of information (like an email address) it then attempts to discover, connect and map out all of that persons social media accounts and content online.

    There might be major privacy issues with this, but I could see companies paying big bucks to discover all the relevant content of a single individual given just an email address. I'm thinking background checks, pre-employment checks, probability of gun violence.

    Actually, I'm starting to think this is a really bad idea. Oh well, posting it anyway!

  • posted Try Gradual Engagement instead of a hasty sign up.
    Instead of asking visitors to sign up immediately, why not ask them to first perform a task through
    which something of value is demonstrated. During such initial interactions the product can both
    show off its benefits, as well as can lend itself to personalization. Once users begin to see your
    product’s value and see how they can make it their own, they will then be more open to sharing
    with you additional information. Gradual engagement is really a way to postpone the sign up
    process as much as possible and still allow users to use and customize your application or product.

      Ali Mirza I love this idea. I think startups can use it to do customer validation (& to monitor their behavior)

  • posted A website that collected ideas from anyone, then provided free feedback on the validity of that idea via snail mail. You could give each idea a score from one to five. We could call it Idea Poop. In fact, let me get a site pulled together. Hold on a sec.
