Keeping it fresh
A smorgasbord of half-baked, half-designed but potentially viable ideas, concepts and designs
This is where ideas go to die, get parked, or forgotten about. See anything you like? Want to partner up on making something happen? Or have an idea sparked by these? Let me know.
Side Project: QuickScore
This is an incomplete idea for creating a well-designed, single-function app for football fans. QuickScore would simply push score updates to your phone when a major event occurs in-game.
Clearleft Hack: Strava Ghost
Most Hack Farm projects start as someone’s itch that needs scratching. Last year’s TinyPlanner was Boxman’s need for a backwards to-do list. Our 2012 Hack Farm ended up as a collaborative effort to improve political opinion tracking, which was an itch shared by many.
Side Project: wikn
wikn is an unbaked idea for a site catered to the newcomers in the web industry.
There's always an expectation that everyone knows what they're doing in life. The reality is that no one has a clue, and they're just winging it.
Wikn (What I know now) is a side project intended to help newbies gain knowledge and insight from anonymous advice given by 'veterans'. The intention was/is to manually accept and publish anonymous posts, in turn creating a valuable resource of information that might help old and young alike.
