While this might not qualify as a project - because it was nothing more than a thought until yesterday...

But, after seeing the piece on CBS Sunday Morning about Quirky, I decided to spend ten precious minutes putting a pen to paper and submitted the idea into their process. Its very cool, because they end up doing all the patent filing, design, production and marketing of the product if it makes it through the Expert Panels they do every Thursday (you can watch the live webcast every week!)

Anyhow - if you think the idea is cool - or you'd even like to help influence the project design, name and operation (all 'influencers' are entitled to a cut of the profits) - I'd appreciate if you guys could help bump it up the chain with an up-vote. So far it seems to be trending well in its category.

I had originally wrote this project off as I thought coding a set of mobile apps was unrealistic. I really like the idea of putting a "message in a bottle" and sending it off... I'm excited to see how far it'll float :)

UPDATE: they got back to me a couple weeks ago. I got the thumbs down :(

Oh well. Hopefully a few of you went away with more familiarity with what Quirky is all about.

Turns out you really can make something happen with just an idea.... and have others do all the work for you! Just not in my case (yet!)
