    (19132)   Transitive Pull model - impedence of work and profit:  Every action of work should benefit the employer and by extension employees. How to algorithmically identify cost effective work tasks so everything a worker does pulls towards profit? I think this is an algorithmic problem. Effects of work can be represented as a graph of cause and effect. If you don't do administration or what causes your business to earn money, you go out of business. Work done is not priced unless you're a billable employee. Need some method valuing work and estimating compexity in terms of time used to calculate price (+) [en]

    (19130)   Can A* be used to generate algorithm sourcecode?:  I thought of an idea to use a* algorithm to "walk" toward a solution that solves a programming problem. Each neighbour can be a weighted list of programming tasks such as if statement, for each, assignment, recursive call. How do you map example data structures transformations to code that fulfils the changes to the data structure? You need a cost function that decreases when the output gets nearer to the solution. What does the cost function for code solving a problem look similar to? (+) [en]

    (19128)   Stack pattern match:  Imagine you have a reference implementation of a btree and a reference implementation of a locking manager and a security manager and you want to tie them together. You could add code calls from one to the other but what if there is a better way? The better way for extensibility is to match stack function calldepths to code snippets that run whenever the pattern is matched. For example when a btree is split you might want to acquire locks or release locks in a certain order. We can do pattern matching around the callsite of a btree split and return values and do the right locking and security behaviours without needing to change the API of either. Essentially you have parallel multiple return values. (+) [en]

    (19127)   Failure due to not enough critical mass:  For some thing to be successful, it needs critical mass. If a company doesn't get enough customers, it shall shut down. Same with websites and blogs, if they don't get visitors the creators or author loses interest or loses money for long enough they stop. (+) [en]

    (19127)   Commit to buy & crowdfunding:  Imagine you want something that doesn't exist. What do you do? It should be possible to commit to buy something at a price. Market research and product development is expensive, you need a guarantee you buy something at a price, buying signals are currently invisible. (+) [en]

    (19127)   Forever tape abstraction:  With computers we often have different places to place data that determines how fast or how large the data is. For example, we have the stack, main memory, virtual memory, page files, disk files, buffers, heap, S3, SANs, NFS. Can we create an abstraction that captures the differences of each of these kinds of storage and allows efficient management of each of them and switching between them so that there is an illusion that memory is infinite but efficient. For example, you might want to load chunks from S3 efficiently into main memory and cached on disk. (+) [en]

    (19123)   Schools, Universities and Colleges are business umbrella organisations:  The purpose of a school, college and university is to educate. But what if students want to provide services to the general public or other businesses? As parent category attests it's too difficult to start a business. There is so much administration to be done when all you want to do is a job. I propose schools, colleges and universities have umbrella organisations associated with them and provide an ERP and administration software for running of businesses. So the education organisation acts as a sort of bootstrap organisation for providing products and services. (+) [en]

    (19122)   Money packages:  Ask a computer what you can get by putting in a money amount in and it shall tell you a package of goods and services that when combined offer something useful to you in return for that money.. so if you put enough cash for a home renovation it shall show you ideas for a house renovation and be fully costed. If you have certain electronics it shall recommend what electronics to buy based on what you have such as accessories. (+) [en]

    (19122)   Dynamic bus routing:  For a bus service to be profitable it needs to have a certain number of customers or users of the bus. The bus also must service people where they need the bus. I propose an app where people can use the day before taking a bus journey and they can can say at what time they need to be somewhere before then a algorithm plots a bus route to pick up all those people.

    (19114)   Everyone is their own currency:  You often see companies advertising cashback or money off products or you get a gift for purchasing or they donate money to charity. It is ultimately meaningless as it is simply money off the sticker price. We need a unit that is gained when you purchase some thing. When you buy some thing you cause lots of good things and work for people which is good. It gives people things to do and it coordinates society. You should always be capable of buying food and energy. Your currency of yourself should guarantee this for exchange. So I can go I to a shop and buy anything with chronological or Sam coins. Then the seller gains a marginal benefit based on my labour creative output in return for holding chronological or Sam coins. They have a claim on my output (+) [en]
