Rating Ideas

Some thoughts about what makes an idea worth developing.

  1. Does it help the community?
  2. Is it a platform usable for business?
  3. Will it make money?
  4. Is there a “side door”?
  5. Does it fill a niche?
  6. Will people use it? How do we test this?
  7. Will I use it?
  8. Is it free?
  9. Will I enjoy developing it?

How do we test if people will use it?
