I was thinking about it some more and there’s no way the original person who had the idea can get credit, because that raises intellectual property, who-was-there-first, stealing issues that I’m not planning on resolving as the web host. Credit can only be given voluntarily by whoever decides to run with the idea. I still think it’s worth a shot. It combines the best of web 2.0 ideas:
digg – users can digg others’ ideas to make them more popular/show increased demand
tags – users can tag ideas so browsers can see all ideas related to a topic. this could be useful for businesses canvassing public opinion
wiki – if the originator of the idea wants, he could make it a wiki so people improve upon the idea and make it more rigorous and popular.
I’ve seen things on the web for computer programs and other specialties. I want to cover everything under the sun. So there’s my idea, the first one of the Repository.
