Million-Dollar Idea:

Here’s an idea I have for a site, but I just don’t have the time and passion necessary to build it.

It’s for my domain and could be called something to the effect of “Brainlogger.” Here’s what it does…

Each day, you go to the site and log what’s happening in your brain at that moment. It’s like web server logs for your brain!

Then, you get answers to questions like these:

  • What were you thinking 24 hours ago?
  • Yesterday at this time?
  • Last week at this time?
  • Last month at this time?
  • 1 year ago today?
  • Last decade at this time?
  • What were you thinking of 1 year ago this week?
  • What were you thinking of 1 year ago this month?

Then, you get interesting statistics like these:

  • What you think about most often
  • The words and phrases that occur most frequently in your thoughts
  • Any patterns or cycles the software can recognize
  • What you tend to be doing each day of the week, month of the year, etc.
  • How you can discipline your thinking habits
  • How you can improve your memory
  • How you can make the most of your reflection time

I get struck by great (in my opinion) ideas like this one literally every day. If only…!

Don’t anyone tell me there are no good ideas left in the world… but then again, you might think this one sucks. If so, I’d like to hear your idea. What do you think?

    So it’s basically like a diary, except that the site itself prompts you with questions that are supposed to inspire interesting entries? And hopefully it inspires you to write cool entries every day instead of just once in a while?

    Okay. Cool.

    the site is suppose to be able to sort your thoughts, right? Like categorize your thoughts so perhaps see a pattern in your thinking, where there is a progression, or where you are getting stuck. Then perhaps it can help you “psycho-analyze” yourself.
    If it can be programmed to something like that, I would use it.

    You should keep a diary or journal of your own of all your great ideas so that you’ll have them all in hand when you need to recall them later (to put together a startup, for example) instead of wracking your brain trying to recall all those great ideas you had.

    doesn’t twitter do this already?
    there are 5 year diaries that do this sort of thing too….
    might be nice to see it on the web, but not sure how much I’d dump into it.
