So I spent most of the weekend in front of my two PCs. I played some video games, it's true, but mostly I just got back to the joy of the browse. I found some great blogs, like Zach Braff's and Greedy Girl



I also realized, this morning, that I'm quietly searching for a new idea. Sure, I've got 200 of them floating around, but none of them are quite compelling for some reason. I learned a lot from my dealings with MusicRip, but, like my experiences with dating, the whole shebang is more about learning what you can't deal with than the reverse.



Residuals. Self-management. Minimal shipping. Niche. Margins over 20%. Accessibility. Passion for the topic.



Sigh. I think that was the requirements list in exact reverse order.

I did see a little app called netflixter (google it, I don't remember the link). It's a windoze app that folks use to manage their netflix queues.



Now, I'm sure that's a relatively complicated engineering task, but do people REALLY pay $25 for drag-n-drop netflix queue management capabilities?



I find that astounding. Has anyone used this thing?

Maybe I need a new hobby besides starting businesses. Piano?
