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.

Website that teaches how to program Printer Friendly Version
How about a very interactive/fun website that teaches people how to program or make websites? Here's how it would work:
- Someone creates an account on the website. The account creation process would figure out where the person should go/start in the midst of all of these interactive tutorials. The same account could be used to add or edit existing tutorials (an approval system would be made). They can do as little as adding on a sentence to someone else's tutorial or create a flash application that would enhance how to create x with language y.
- There would be all kinds of interactive/fun tutorials ranging from HTML, Java, C++, web design, Photoshop, and so on. It would help people who think they don't have what it takes to make a good website or have what it takes to program. This will be the site's main purpose: to get more and more people better at this stuff seeing as how so many people are in need/desire of a website but in so many cases have to get other people to help them make it.
- There would be some kind of incentive to making tutorials or even going through the tutorials. That I don't know yet.
- The tutorials could contain mini games (whether they were simple text-based or bigger flash applications) that help introduce an idea or whatever.
Reward: I dunno.

Open Source P2P Adsense Printer Friendly Version
It seems that currently internet advertising is moving into a new phase, called content sensitive advertising. Google is the main contender in this field with its adsense and adwords.
In another unrelated area of the net, Open Source is growing very fast, and in the 3rd corner is Peer 2 Peer software (or shared computing).
What makes adsense work so well is the amount of people that use it, and the google name behind it makes it better.
Think what would happen if a lot of small websites were to offer services like adsense... They would not work. But if they were to join in colaboration, developing open source adsense like software, they could be a step better.
To really compete, the little players need to work together have the advertising network built over p2p so all the players work in colaboration.
The network could be built on trust. So you trust your advertising partners, and they trust theirs etc. etc.
If any one wants to grab this idea and start running, I will gladly be a part of it (not that this is a requirement).
The only reason that I am submitting this idea, is that without the power of open source, little me can not compete with the google giant.
Reward: Money, Glory, Fame, Top geek status
