Shlomi Fish' Random Ideas


Ideas are the lowest level of value-production and comprise of 1/1111 of the effort it takes to materialize a tangible value. Nevertheless, I have a lot of them, which I cannot or don't have the time to realize right now, so I decided to put them here for all people who wish to be inspired.

I don't put here things that are sort of pipe-dreams (solve any NP-complete problem at polynomial time; prove Goldbach's Theorem), but rather think that can be materialized given enough time and effort. If you do materialize them (or know of someone who did), write me a note and I'll mention you on this site.

An Affordable Private School Network

Objectivists can tell you only too much about the evils of public education. They are right. But being a bit proactive, I think the solution is to create a network of private schools that will compete (and eventually out-compete) the public schools. As opposed to traditional private schools, they should aim to be affordable.

With enough schools like that, that would still offer a superior education, the need for public schools would be very much decreased and eventually completely eliminated.

Discotheques Playing Music at a Decent Volume

I hate going to discotheque because the music is so loud and I don't like to ruin my ears. (which happen for discotheques patrons all the time). I believe a discotheque that would make it its policy not to play music too loudly can actually make a lot of money from people like me.

Computer Games with a Sensible Budget

It is well known that to accomodate with today gaming "standards", computer games became more and more pricy to produce. However, while having better graphics and special effects, they are by no means better. Hell, they are all pretty much the same.

Instead of producing one $2,000,000 game, isn't it possible to produce 5 $400,000 with lesser graphics, audio and effects, but better playability? I think it is possible and that this course of action would be better in the long run. Think about it.
