Buy & Sell Waiting Time Printer Friendly Version
Time is money, but for different individuals it has a different value. Bill Gates for example (or a busy manager) will lose hundreds of dollars in the doctor's waiting room or while he is standing in a long queue at the supermarket, while a student's time is much cheaper.
My idea is that you should be able to buy / sell your waiting time. If you're in a hurry and don't want to lose valuable time, you should be able to buy time in situations that would otherwise be time-consuming. Selling their time would also be an interesting source of income for people who are not so well off.
Of course, some (central) agency would probably have to coordinate this.
Reward: A certain amount of free bonus time at my disposal.

Movie theaters Printer Friendly Version
Why cant they have a movie theater where you can bring your own movie in to be played on the big screen. Sometimes seeing the movie on the TV is not good enough but you didn't get the chance to see it on the big screen. It would be like rent a theater. You could rent it for 10 or 20 bucks, bring 10 of your friends and the movie theater can list it in the paper so maybe other people could see it too. They could pay 2 to 3 bucks. I would love to see Jaws or some of the other 20,000 I didn't get to see again. There are movie theaters in every town that are closed since the big giants came in. I would love to see this happen.
Reward: Free entry.

Intelligent Email Software Printer Friendly Version
When I write my email, I'm sometimes REALLY absent-minded. One of the worst mistakes I sometimes make is sending mails to the wrong people. This problem could be solved by an intelligent email client that does some basic checking and then outputs an appropriate error message (e.g. "Are you sure you want to be so rude to your GRANDMOTHER?" - "Do you really want to send this business letter to yourself?" etc. etc.)
With 20-30% of the internet population ignoring unpleasant emails, I would also need a "Be a pain in the neck"-Button. The conventional method (pushing the "Forward" button and then copying&pasting the original email address by hand) gets boring after some time.
Reward: Free copy of the software.
