A site to post ideas

This is a site dedicated to posting ideas that I cannot get done or will not get done and want someone else to “steal”.

Wait, that’s weird, you are reading about an idea to have a site where you can post ideas, while on the site where you can post ideas.  Round and round we go, where it stops nobody knows….

Job search site

This will be a site that focuses on matching people to the right job vs. people searching for jobs they think they want.

Working on this actively (alright, semi-actively), but can’t move forward without partner.

Custom Degree Database

The basic concept is this:  You want to get a degree from ASU, but some of the best teachers in your field teach at other schools.

You can take other classes from other schools and some credits and grades transfer, while others do not. However, that info as to what credits transfer, etc. is not readily available online and there is no system in place to assist you in creating your own “custom” degree.  Your degree would only play a limited role as related to who you took your classes from.  Oh, I see that you took D. Quinn Mills leadership class at HBS and …..

In this day and age of technology, we should be able to choose ASU and then do a worldwide search on what classes transfer to ASU towards your degree.

So let’s say I want a business degree from ASU and when I see that I need to take Business Ethics, I can see what classes are offered at ASU and then immediately see what classes are offered all around the world that transfer to ASU for credit.  Obviously, I am talking about mostly online classes as it would be challenging to physically travel around the world to take individual classes.

But think about what a great well rounded education that you could get from this concept.

Barriers to entry:  Ridiculous, have you ever dealt with public education, URGH!!!
