Startup Ideas [My Weekend Project]


#1

So I log all of my ideas in a Google Doc, over time it has become quite large and I realized most of these ideas I’ll never do. I figure most people have ideas they come up with, but lack the time or energy to work on them.

I made a little site this weekend called HourlyPitch.com, it’s premise is simple: a user submitted idea that changes every hour.

I actually uploaded all of my ideas, which are the ones you’ll probably see first! It’s random though so who knows :smiley:

Let me know any comments or questions, got bored over the long weekend :stuck_out_tongue:


#2

Are the submissions moderated?


#3

Yeah, I manually approve them. Source is at github.com/clone1018/hourlypitch


#4

Are you prepared for the flood of spam?


#5

I ended up using go and sqlite for the project, the homepage can handle thousands of requests a second. However I think the submit page can only handle 1 submit every 10ms or something, sqlite has to lock write and unlock.

Moderation is limited by my time, who knows what’ll happen!

Also there’s a new idea!


#6

Might be interesting to have a “This exists!” button or something. With a text field for visitors to link you where the project exists at.

For example the one up right now is for a date night subscription box. This exists and I have friends who get those monthly. I think the one they get is called Date Box.


#7

Is the thought that someone would find an idea that they would like to take on? How do you know when it has been “adopted”. What about ownership of the idea?
