This is a list of the projects that I would like to explore when I have some free time. If you create something mentioned here please let me know, I'd like to use it.
- lyricsapi.org: I want to extract the lyric fetching part from makeitpersonal and use it to create a public API for lyrics (free or with reasonable prices for hobbyist usage). If you have a similar, free software solution for this I'd be happy to donate the domain name.
- ds: ds is a wrapper for Unix daemon control facilities. Here's a full README and no actual code.
- .diary: Online user-friendly datastore with a heavy emphasis on privacy and security. Think of Tarsnap for regular people who just want to keep a record of their shit. The level of security should be somewhere around "A cartel leader wants to have a diary online and he wants you to write the software for it". By "their shit" I mean documents, photos, lying lies and dirty secrets.
- Unobtrusive Video Annotations: I like to take notes from videos (here's an example). Ideally this would work as an unobtrusive piece of desktop software that I can call by pressing a key combination. It would show an overlay (think Fantastical) and it should have Markdown support.
- Tool for Editing Texts: I spend a lot of time editing other people's texts or having them edit my own. I'd like to create yet another collaborative tool for annotationing and editing text. The twist? Kinda stupid: just use plain-text/unrendered Markdown instead of fancy typesetting systems so people can focus on the letters, not the colors.
- Controversipedia: Take the entire dataset of Wikipedia and for each entry publish only the "Controversy" or "Criticism" section of each article. See an example here.
- EventualApp: In the past I wrote tool called EventualTweet that allowed you to schedule tweets for a time in the future. It probably still is the simplest tool in the "market" to do this. I'd like to extend it so you can also schedule emails.
