One Percent Inspiration  
I have a list of ideas.  I carry it around in my pocket (in a PDA).  They are big ideas, for difficult projects, with commercial viability, such that, if I were the risk-taking sort, I could quit my job, focus on it, and try to make my fortune.  I haven't done any of them.  Some of the ideas I had years ago have since been realized by others who had the same ideas and formed companies around them.

Today I had my first new idea in about a year, and it's a great one.  I'm really excited about it.

I'm not going to tell you what it is, but ask me later if I've worked on it.  I don't want this one to just sit in my pocket.

I want to know!

My big idea for today was for caffeinated hot chocolate. I think hot cocoa is already caffeinated, but it should really be MORE caffeinated.

Spelling caffeine alot is kind of fun. So are fevers.

I must get my office to invest in this. Genius!

Oh, no. Us choco-loving folk with acid reflux need less caffeine, not more. Carob powder works, but is hard to find.

Yep, I do the same thing. I came up with a bunch of ideas this weekend - one of which was to create a blog for my ideas, projects, sources, etc. I'm hoping that it'll inspire me to follow through on more projects than my previous system of post-its, bookmarks, and scattered notebooks.

Of course, creating a blog looking the way I wanted involved learning PHP programming and cascading style sheets... so it became another big project...

Re: Hows it going
I've been distracted by another opportunity that popped up. I began running for Congress, instead. However, this idea is related. Maybe I can incorporate it.
