This is the second cool thing happening to me since I started blogging for O’Reilly: Because my original post about My Dream App apparently got the most traffic to their site, I was invited to write comments on a couple of the ideas that are in round 2. It is interesting and kind of fun to read the comments of the other guest judges. It is also an interesting model to figure out customer demand for a new cool idea, although it is certainly more than a bit biased by the audience being from a certain demographic group. My favorite ideas are Blossom (a desktop plant that blossoms or withers according to your efforts of reaching a certain goal), iGTD (a different approach to todo lists that seems to suit my chaotic personality much better than exisiting models) and Destinations (which, although the specific idea of a travel planner does not resonate too much with me, sparks my imagination on how to create a travel log template engine…). It will be fun to see which idea makes it in the end. And it will also be interesting to see how it is going to be marketed.
