I am not an idea factory, however I try to be creative and curious. I like writing new ideas on my iPhone and texting them to friends (notably Nick and AK). Ya know, tryna make as much use of my digital tertiary layer.
If I ever remember them, I can ignite an intellectually stimulating conversation and bring it up as a table topic. Who knows, in the beginning, everything was just an idea.
Thinking you know exactly where you’ll be is a kind of lack of humility that doesn’t let you invent.

Some apps I would like to code one day in my free time, or you might want to try yourself:
I know, I know, Shazam already exists.. but it doesn’t let you synchronize songs with other people if you’re using different devices.
You can have something written for your friends or family weeks in advance use this app to send a message to them on their beloved day. It might even find some market into automated gifts system :).
My friend AK showed me this binary search algorithm:
def binarySearch(alist, item):
first = 0
last = len(alist)-1
found = False
while first < =last and not found:
midpoint = (first + last)//2
if alist[midpoint] == item:
found = True
if item < alist[midpoint]:
last = midpoint-1
first = midpoint+1
