fighting the lack of good ideas

visual text messaging

That’s what Marco Polo is.

Visual text messaging.

With the added perk of being able to save videos you make to your local device for sharing elsehow and elsewhere.

And that, I think, is it’s true Killer Feature™ – the ability to take selfie videos, get more or less instant feedback, make a few tweaks, and then post it for the world to see (if you’re into that kind of thing).

columnar “email”

There needs to be a better way of handling group conversations. IRC uses the constant scroll mentality. Email has reply-at-top, reply-at-bottom, and reply-inline.

Forums, reddit, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and the like have a scroll-like view – every new post is merely sequentially listed after the last.

This can all lead to highly confusing digital conversations.

Somebody should make a parallel (maybe columnar) discussion/chat/email system where every participant can get their own space to reply, they can reply to specific things from different people, and everything can be viewed in an identified manner. Similar to how Track Changes works in Microsoft Word.

Surely it should be That Difficult™ to do this, should it?
