I've always thought it would be very cool to see how much freely available data on the internet could be mined by an automated, free-roving, intelligent agent. I've tried a few times to get started designing something like that, but I always try and design too large of a system the first time through. That process just causes me to get bored, and makes me want to move on to something else. I need to get into the habit of doing small, fast iterations. It's so hard for me to produce something that falls way short of my ultimate goal. I know I need to look at it like a step on the way to my grand idea, but I can't ever keep that in mind while I'm in the middle of something.
