Forums always have been big. It the online enabler for platform communication. I tend to believe that all great things online started out as fora. When it succeeded to build communication and a community around it, the potential was huge. Off course the ask-answer platforms evolved over time. From obscure topical forums over blogs to the Quora‘s of today. I don’t think this idea is revolutionary but could work additionally to the existing question/answers communities with a separate business model.
When you have people with questions, they look for answers. What if you provide answers in case one doesn’t want to search. Or the question is too difficult to be found in the myriad of the web? Any person can just ask their question while paying two cents. Any person that answers the question, and its answer gets approved receives 1ct. One can cash out at 1 euro, use it to post their questions or change them into miles and more.
The challenge is in the profiling of the people so the API will plug into existing networks like LinkedIn. By positioning itself as a plugin (cfr. Disqus), it connects human knowledge and facilitates a human p2p network on top of existing networks and services.
With office space expensive in a lot of area’s and people working mostly as digital nomads space can be used more optimal.
A comfortable office chair with small tablet as desk, a hydraulic arm with a second (large) screen that can be deployed from the back, plugs for any device and electricity plugs under the seating that get powered by batteries in the wheels that are powered by floor contact or through an additional plug for supercharging reduces desk space with a factor between 3 and 5. Furthermore when equipped with a GPS, it can anticipate constant movement. By including your calendar appointments, you will move automatically to the meeting rooms in time, without being distracted from what you do and thus save productivity time. Over time, more intelligence could be build in so it analyzes everything you and your colleagues work on in real time so clusters of work will group people more logically on the floor. Adding the layer of wellness (massage buttons, media center,…) makes sure you never want to leave it again. Except when you feel the urge to spend a penny… 🙂
Every couple of years I start running but once I’m up to speed, I need to stop because of painful knees and joints. What I like most was running with music in my ears. I also noticed that some of music made me run faster.
Pandemic Music Runner is a plug-in, add-on for any sports GPS tracker (Nike+, Runkeeper, …) that analysis your performance in relation to the music you’re listening to (such as Pandora, Shazam, …).
I believe that music in training improves more rapidly sport performances. Based on one’s personal music taste and past training analysis, new adapted training programs rolls out of the app. By offering it to the masses – the giant amount of data that gets collected can be analyzed and gives the opportunity to grow it into a professional sport consultancy service.
