Idea #27: Herbal Recognition app

I’ve been reading the Moneyless Man‘s book recently. Author Mark Boyle was just a normal Irishman going to work in a suit until he realised that money is the root of all the world’s problems. So he did what any sane person would do: he gave it up.

No, sorry mate I've got no […]

Idea #26: Epic timelapse of future history

I recently posted on Amazing Stuff an exhibition of photographs depicting how places around the world have changed over time.

Putting this together I discovered that it’s surprisingly difficult to find photos of the same location, taken decades apart. Naturally, the problem is finding the older photographs – if you were one of the […]

Idea #25: Amazing Stuff website

To celebrate a quarter of a century’s worth of ideas (had I blogged at a rate of one idea a year (I’m trying)), here is an extra special idea – one I’m actually doing!

Idea #20: Digital will

Death comes to us all. Why not make a bit of money out of it, you scumbag? No, no, no… you’re providing a service… it’s a service… […]






Idea #19: Bio fashion

The leaf. Fragile, yet resilient. Fascinating, yet boring. Ubiquitous, yet oft overlooked. As it relates to bio fashion, however, we can skirt the issue no longer – let the bridal march ring out on nature’s photosynthesiser, and / or read this idea if you are a girl. […]
