Simple site for finding people to work on projects with you
(Note: the goal of this post is to get comments, ideas, and feedback)
We've all had that experience: "this is a great idea, I can't believe no one's done it before!" Then you start designing it, and coding it, and...if you're like me, you lose interest after 1-2 weeks.
What if you could say "I have a great idea for a project", and you could post it on a site and find other people who are interested and capable and get them to work on it with you? That'd be sweet, huh? That's the baseline idea for this site.
This site would be designed with homebrew (+ nonpaid) projects in mind, with teams of 3-5 people per project. The site isn't about hosting your data, or anything with project execution -- it's only for finding people (and a couple other things).
So far, there are three sections.
* First is an Ideas section. This is where you go if you have a great idea, but don't want to be the one to work on it or coordinate it. You can post your idea here and see what projects are created around the idea.
* Second is a Projects section. This is where you find interesting projects that you may want to join, or kick people out of your project if they've fallen off the face of the earth, or get contact information for others working on the project.
* Third is what I'm presently calling the "Graveyard". You can upload or link to so-called "dead" projects that are never going to be worked on again, but you want to allow other people to continue. By posting a project there it'd automatically be released under some license, like say the BSD or MIT license.
That's the 1.0 functionality...
Before giving my ideas for additional functionality, does anyone have any comments/feedback? Sound useful at all? Also the name is TBD, so if anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful...
