Had an idea for an intellegent news agent that would use RSS to get headlines every hour or so, and read the contents of each news item. Each item would be parsed out into a interpreter similar to Mind.Forth that would build up a knowledge base that could be queried with english questions. Also, this program would actually be able to come up with ideas of it's own based on it's own musings.
Had an idea for a testing service based on a peer-to-peer topology. You could do things like distributed load tests, remote pings, remote traceroutes, and check http request response times. You would have to load up a servant to use the service, so that every user of the service becomes a potential testing platform. Security would only allow guests to submit tests that ran from at most 5 remote stations. This would prevent the network from being used for DoS attacks.
