3D Photo Collaboration Website (e.g. Google earth extension) Printer Friendly Version
First of all, I have to say, that my English is not the best, so please don´t blame me. I thought, if it wouldn´t be great to have a software, that could draw a place or Street in 3D, where I could walk virtual through. Bingo, this is Google Earth in the 3D modus, for example in New York.
The second part of my idea was, that it would be great to walk for example through the 5th avenue in New York and when you look around in your 3D enviroment, you don´t see just grey block, which are standing for the different buildings in the street, as in Goggle Earth. Instead of that, you could take some pictures from the 5th avenue from your last New York trip and pin the photo at the right place in the street in the 3d enviroment. It has to be just the place where you take the photo, so that you could place yourself in front of the virtual photo in the virtual enviroment and see the actual building in front of you. I know, there is a extension for Google earth in combination with flickr.com that does nearly the same, but without the 3D effect. Now imagine, a lot of people would place their different photos from the 5th avenue in the virtual avenue at the right places and in the end you would get a full 3D picture along the 5th avenue.
Now the next dimension: when you get this, wouldn´t it be great if you could find for every picture the year when it was taken. So every contributor of a picture has to find the year for his picture. Then put every picture in relation to the year. Now, if you find enough pictures for the 5th avenue from enough years, you could walk through the street virtual in time (choose the year you want to walk) and space. Beside that it would be a great work of internet collaboration, like a Photo wiki. What do you think?
Reward: Mention my name in combination with the product

Serial bid algorithm Printer Friendly Version
1. The Problem - If you want to buy an item, which is offered several times in (internet-)auctions and you want to pay a finite maximum price, then you have to bid for each offer separately until you suceed buying at your maximum price or lower. This is unpleasant.
2. The Solution - Order the auctions you are interested in in a list I (the auction, that will finish soonest, first) and mark some maximum price p_I for the list. Now an (computerized) agent might bid for the first item on the list until it wins the auction or the maximum price p_I is surpassed. In the first case, you got your item and the agent drops your list and stops bidding. In the second case, the agent drops the first item from your list and continues to bid for the rest of the list.
By that, you either win exactly one item from your list, or all items are sold above your maximum price.
I call this serial bid.
Reward: Dedicate one of your patents if you have any.

Virtual Map Pins Printer Friendly Version
So after Stig returned from Iceland, he thought it would be kind of cool to put up one of those big maps with pins in all the places he had been (he traveled via Panama City and Osaka). Unfortunately, Stig doesn't have any free wall space.
After we argued for a bit about whether he should take down his ancient Def Leppard poster, we agreed that being able to do this on a computer would save a lot of space. There are plenty of map programs, but are there any that allow you to insert virtual pins?
Reward: Full credit for the idea, a copy of the software, and some new socks.
