Looking for coding help for my big idea

whats the big idea?
at 1:37 PM (2 comments total)
metafilter has inspired me and it's really gotten me thinking --> about the way good ideas are communicated and how specific information is shared and stored, pushed and pulled, not just out across the ether but at a working level, between like minds.
i envision an interface, something smarter than a portal, bigger than a weblog, but not far removed, that will represent a resource so elegant and functional for its users that to step back and watch it perform (once it ramps up to speed) will elicit in its creators a palpable sense of eureka, could that word be used as a noun. think metafilter, only aimed at people in a particular creative field.
which brings me to the point: i can't take this idea where it needs to go alone, not b/c it's impossible, but b/c i'm not in a position to learn the requisite coding skills quickly enough to do this right (the only way to do it), and my budget is < 0. but if the idea above spins your wheels, and if things like perl, mod perl, mySQL, php and/or cold fusion rattle in your toolkit, perhaps we should be talking. drop me a note and i can get more specific: firstname.lastname@example.org

alan, you might want to cruise the open source project descriptions at
. chances are, there's already a project kinda like what you're thinking about (eg, have you checked out
and if nothing on those sites sounds like what you wanna do, write up your specs, and start a project at one of those sites.
