So here is my problem with social media and many of the channels out there such as facebook, twitter and blogging.
I constantly have my ideas trivialized (by myself) before I get them out when I’m trying to generate ideas which I only share over these platforms. Why? Well, when I talk to someone IRL the smallest idea can become genius because I get the instant feedback of that idea from the reaction of the person I’m talking to.
When I send out an idea in cyberspace, on the other hand, I do not know the reactions of my idea until seconds or minutes later. How can we change that?
I would like to see a portal where I could log on at any time of the day, turn on my webcamera and talk to all my friends that happen to be connected at that moment.
Like a videotwitter of anyone-tedtalks. I do not have to be friends with them in real life, just accept them as a friend in online.
If this existed I could wake up in the middle of the night and try an idea on someone who is at lunch break in another part of the world.
The issue is of course that most might not want to have their webcams on all the time and it could easily get spammed.
Maybe it should be a network of networks, so that I invite the people I want to connect with and the network can ping my computer anytime anyone has an idea they wanna share.
An ideal network would contain maybe 100 people from all over the world, making it not to big that I would be constantly interrupted by pings yet be able to secure that someone would be at their computer 24/7.
Perhaps one should have a widget allowing me to connect to different networks, all personal networks or an open channel for complete networking.
The idea is basically a combination of Ted, Twitter and random video chats.
What do you think? Do you know of anything like this that I might not?
