The living wall… As we talked about.. A google-maps ish type of thing where time is constantly scrolling by. I’m working on the backend info on what they used to do gmaps with but it could be interesting..
other things on it… a scrolling ‘news’ thing at the top… that we automatically append the latest google news hot title on.. say every 2 hrs… just text… then at the bottom maybe just banner ads…
also maybe different living walls.. like the ‘master’ one.. or ones for people to share for their group.. like if they have a kid they upload it to that date/time.
Just found out the living wall is taken.. other ideas?

* tags for each addition
– would let you view timelines by tag or combination of tags (birth, people, mac, space.)
You could start this project at a low-level scale- friends and family- and see what things are most fun or what drives people back to view or post.
The +Add button should have 3 parts: 1) pic to upload, 2) caption, 3) URL [optional].
On the actual board the image needs to have a small caption near it, or at least the first 12 words of it.
Tags can have hierarchies. ‘family:fleck’ , ‘family:kahsen’
There are probably algorithms to do a montage arrangement and scaling of images on one of these web2.0 news sites. I feel like Google News, or some third party rewrite of google news did that.
BACKSCROLL.COM is available
ok i think i’ll grab backscroll.com.. that is an awesome name!
just grabbed it from 1and1.com. Great idea Mat! I can’t believe it was available.
Also I like your ideas about tags and adding… This blog thing will work out for us I think to hash this out.. Soon we need to add some pictures for mockups.. I think wordpress supports it inline… i’ll look into it.
So are you guys builing for our own use or as an idea to set up a business?
Set up as a business. Ad generated revenue (google ads most likely).
this had me worried for a minute… Still, I like how they do the headlines…
i just registered
got iatethis.com at yahoo domains for $2.99 and the other one at 1and1.com (with backscroll.com).
Why? all because iâ€™ve been watching a new domain – http://osx.iusethis.com
itâ€™s very addictive. i want to do something with iwatchedthis.com with regard to what you watched (tv eps, movies maybe?) and have people click (iwatchedthis link). hope i could find some way to auto get tv shows and listings.. prob isnâ€™t too hard to do that automagically. with respect to iatethis.com not sure where iâ€™m going with that but it could be more of a site like mat mentioned.. either a specific dish at a restaurant that everyone can get (olive garden – fettucini alfredo) or maybe a flikr type thing where you snap a pic of something weird you just ateâ€¦
i need some ideas â€¦â€¦ feed me!!!!!
