I’m always trying to come up with a new idea to work on. OpenVoter was the perfect project for me, it kept me busy, and I think I came out with a pretty good solution. But over time, it became slightly less relevant. Reddit has pretty much taken over and since people can create their own subreddits, OpenVoter didn’t really have a place. I’m keeping the site up and you can still download it, but the code hasn’t been touched in ages, and I don’t know if I’ll ever go back to it, though I haven’t really ruled it out. Maybe one of these days I’ll get around to uploading the source to Github.
But since moving on from OpenVoter, I really haven’t come up with something new. Now, with the shutdown of Google Reader, I’ve considered moving forward with developing my own replacement. I’m also considering releasing something more, something for the masses. I’ve tried out Feedly and while its not bad, it’s really not Google Reader. I guess part of it is me getting so used to a service only to have it shut down or changed. So right now, I’m brainstorming. Trying to come up with the features I am looking for for me, and seeing if I can’t make it both for me and for others.
Projects like this excite me, it’s something I enjoy doing so hopefully I can figure out something.
