Idea, idea, idea… Now repeat 59 times. Voilà! 59 ideas!
You may have notice that as you hover over a link on this site, a dialogue bubble pops up showing a snapshot of the link (Try it).
Thumbshots has thumbnail preview of sites for a long time (and I’m sure there are many more). These (Web 1.0?) sites should have made it as easy to include thumbnails for user to include into their site. But I guess they stopped innovating and Snap came in. A case of doing something simple, better.
It would be interesting to see Snap.com’s revenue model.
I just ran across this idea today. Go visit 2 to the 22.
This idea is simple yet if Tonni (the guy behind it) pulls it off he will be capital letter RICH. It does remind us of the million pixel idea.
So what is the idea about?
Basically the idea is that the price to buy a slot on the homepage double each time it changes hand. Starting from 1 at $1, it will stop when it had double 22 times. Check out how it works.
(Heard of the fable of the king that was asked for grain of rice that double on each box of the checker board?)
Below I did a calculation of what he had made as of now and how much he stands to make at each stage.
Watch the power of the internet buzz!

Feature is one thing but integration is another. I’m not a person that would use one site for email, another site for calendar and yet another for address book, all because they are best of breed. Put them in one place please.
That’s why portal like Yahoo works before and Google is doing a fantastic job wooing me.
Yahoo, why can’t you open your all-too-great Yahoo mail beta to non-US users?
Nevermind, I’m using GMail now.
So let see when Google is giving me a better address book.
Put simply, the idea behind Blue Security is to stop spam by community pressure, what they called Active DeterrenceTM. Watch this flash introduction.
I’m focusing on the consumer solution here. They also have solution for corporates, email marketers and website owners.
You are required to download a software to install on your computer. As usual I’m reluctant. However SiteAdvisor has some good comments and the program is open source. So I believe they are bona fide and safe.
While this will work with regular online retailers that want to maintain reputation, I doubt it would work with hardcore spammers that paddles viagra, porn, logo, ipod, make money quick, nigeria scams and what have you. Their sole purpose to existance is to spam.
If you have use it, what’s your experiences?
