IDEA #89 – Clouds in the Sky

Alright, I’ll admit — this idea is simple and possibly weak. It’s not even mine, it’s my buddy Bob’s idea.

How many cloud photographs exist? And have you ever looked at a cloud and saw something, and someone else saw something else? It might look like a cow, or a cat with a hat on, etc.

What about a site kind of like LOLCats that allows you to caption cloud photos? Or simply comment on them as to what you see.

Could be a fun, mindless site in a matter where you just keep clicking through each photo.

    Make it a game sort of like the google image tagging game, where people can score points. And then take the human-generated data and build a giant cloud-gazing AI. :)

    Not a bad idea. I used to lay out in the grass all the time and look at the clouds and see weird crap.

    wow this is really bad idea… do you really think ppl would spend hours of their life checking cloud pictures?

    Why not people spend hours of their life perusing Facebook and lolcats? I think this would be pretty cool, even better to get little kids involved in the picture captioning.

    Honestly, yes. Yes I do.
