Don't know what to do? Start with a bad idea
"I use a trick with co-workers when we’re trying to decide where to eat for lunch and no one has any ideas. I recommend McDonald’s.

An interesting thing happens. Everyone unanimously agrees that we can’t possibly go to McDonald’s, and better lunch suggestions emerge. Magic!

It’s as if we’ve broken the ice with the worst possible idea, and now that the discussion has started, people suddenly get very creative. I call it the McDonald’s Theory: People are inspired to come up with good ideas to ward off bad ones."

Shameless promotion, but 10GB is better than 5GB and with a referral link to get it for you, it's not a bad deal.

How do you tell someone that their idea is nothing if you can't execute on it?  I don't think a patent application should be your priority when you're still looking for someone to 'make your prototype' happen...

That's a pretty damning video on how little most of America matters to the parties vying for the presidency.

This is the kind of stuff that Big Data is going to become just another part of the fabric of ALL IT systems if it's not already.

"They don't trust politicians, the press, or pundits, but they treat the ideas of all of those players seriously enough to formulate an opinion of their own. If only the politicians trying to get their vote behaved the same way."

...Or if their respective parties were allowed to.  I honestly think that the electoral college has pretty much decimated any third party options, and the way our government is set up, there is almost no room for any other party to gain a foothold, and little support for anything other than establishment candidates.  And, since establishments are currently vyying to be polar opposites in every possible wedge issue, you have to play to which issues you're more okay with than the other party, even if you--like probably everybody else in the states--has alot of gray area beliefs that don't fit you neatly into Blue or Red.

This is actually pretty interesting.  I'm curious to see how well it'll do.
