LastBrowser™

LastBrowser™ would be a software product to help developers more easily support mobile devices. In the recent past people have installed many mobile apps for all kinds of purposes. More recently, it seems there are too many apps and many users may be hesitant to install yet another app for some new purpose...at least unless it's really good.

LastBrowser™ would provide a toolkit for developing web apps with mobile functionality. Rather than installing yet another app, a user could visit a web site, and the web app on the site could use LastBrowser™ for required mobile functionality.

Functionality could include persistence for offline support, location, accelerometer, and camera usage. Technical implementation could use a feature called MOM (Mobile Object Model). It could provide JavaScript APIs similar to DOM, except for mobile device specific functionality.

Shared Project Manifesto Version 2

Contents:IntroductionLaunchTradeRewardDevelopVoteHarvest 1. Introduction IP (Intellectual Property) is a great asset but it is hard to produce well. We hypothesize that a market to facilitate shared projects would make it easy to produce IP better.


The market contains projects. Each project has one admin and a number of traders and developers. One user can have any combination of roles at the same time. For example, a user may be an admin and also a trader, or a trader and also a developer. ProjectsUsersAdmin: Provides ideas in exchange for controlTraders: Provide incentives in exchange for growthDevelopers: Provide IP in exchange for incentives 2. Launch When somebody came up with an idea for an IP product, they could create a project for it on the market. That person would be the admin.
The market would record the time the admin launched the project. That lasting record could provide for the admin to claim credit for the project idea, on a first-come, first-served basis. This recogn…

Contact Codes Lite™

CCL (Contact Codes Lite™) would be a software product to help people exchange many kinds of contact information much more easily. CCL would do this by providing users with relatively simple contact codes. The users could distribute the codes to many people in many ways. Then, a person who received a contact code could use it to retrieve the original person's contact information through CCL.

For example, many people still exchange business cards. Retrieving various information from the cards can be time consuming and error prone, especially when there are many cards. Also, when somebody updates their information, the information from the card is no longer valid.

Other good examples for usage of contact codes include:
On a slide in a presentationIn email signaturesOn name tagsIn applications that provide limited space for profile informationWhenever you want to provide easy access to many different contact options without listing each
The main thing that would make CCL different from…

Fog Machine

Fog Machine™ (named because fog is like a cloud, on the ground) is a software product to provide cloud services to customers without a cloud service provider. The problem with the traditional cloud is that it requires a provider. Fog Machine™ would run cloud "nodes" in idle system resources on ordinary user's devices. This would be a peer to peer system in which each connected device would be a peer.

It would support standard cloud APIs (perhaps Cloud Foundry?) and it would be easy to port cloud apps to it off providers such as Google cloud, Azure, or AWS--or maybe it would be effortless for apps that were already portable through compliance with open standards.

We might use encryption for privacy, redundancy for reliability, and remuneration/incentive for resource consistency. The showstopper (critical assumption) is that the synergy would be sufficient to significantly surpass the overhead, and provide competitive performance for at least some types of cloud applicat…
