The recent success of threewords.me and donothingfor2minutes.com got me thinking. I would never bother to build a site like that. They are silly, almost useless, yet somehow they managed to attract a lot of visitors and media coverage. So maybe it’s not those sites that are silly, maybe it’s me. Maybe I don’t understand the Internet.
Therefore I decided to build my own dipshit website to see if I can manage to attract millions of visitors. I already know what will it be, but I don’t want to disclose any details until launch. It won’t solve anyones problem, it won’t save your time or money. If you want to hear about it firsthand, subscribe to this blog or follow me on Twitter.
What happens when a couple of people passionate about web startups go out for a beer and brainstorm ideas? Well, it depends on the amount of beer and, apparently, if you have Dave Ruzius with you. Couple of other WebExpo folks and me were lucky enough to be in this constellation last week, after we abandoned the afterparty searching for a better meal. We ended up in Potrefena Husa (try the burger) and came up with these ideas:
iSmuggle – a service that pairs people looking to buy presumably illegal stuff from foreign countries with travellers, who can smuggle it to them
Got Satisfaction – a customer feedback system for people who pay for sex (customers), pimps (managers) and hoes (“service providers”)
BeatUp – a Meetup clone for rowdies and street fighters; think Fight Club meets the web
