I've Got 999 Ideas and I Can't Pick One!

Mark Cuban recently came up with an idea to boost the economy. He is taking business plan submissions and will fund ideas he thinks have merit. Seth Godin's Alternative MBA Program came up with 999 ideas for the taking.

Here is a random sample:

18. Hedge fund that makes bridge loans to homeowners facing foreclosure.
236. Digital family whiteboard on fridge (like an iTablet for the family)
456. Online Executive Betting System - Online trading system that allows you to trade CEOs like securities to make money
555. An application that you have your friends fill out that will compare against your answers and give you a compatibility score. In addition, tips about their personality.
975. A service that digitizes all your photos.

Check out the full list here.

If any of these ideas appeal to you, put a 1-pager together, shoot me an email and maybe we can wrap a business or two around a couple of these ideas. I bet if we don't, someone will.
