So I am gonna post it here. Iv'e had lots of ideas that I see somebody else do years after I thought about it and didn't do it.. So what the heck.. here's one

Community
current conditions of wait time at local restaurants. Should be cell phone enabled.. that is that members could connect and give a short condition report of the counter wait time/ drive through..

Revenue,, paid membership maybe.. of just maybe a bit of advertising revenue from those restaurants..

Busy people could check as they are leaving work for the drive to their eatery.. check if their backed up or not..

there ya go.. pretty good idea.. should be pretty easy to launch in one marker after another..

and hey.. if you do it.. and get rich.. I would appreciate a thank$.

Add the ability to "put your name on the list" via the website and i would use it. Maybe they text your phone when your table is ready. You would have to set up a way to slip the host(es) a c-note for good seats quickly, maybe individual paypal accounts for each host(es).

also.. since we would already have a database item for each eatery.. we could then most likely print out from the database a bar graph of when each place is the least busy etc.. Each user would need an account that they could specify what type of eatery they are interested in so they would only see conditions for those places.. or even more specific.. a certain venue. would be able to log into the website (from a laptop/desktop) and specify exactly what is on their alert list.

as folks head for the door.. or out to the car they could be interfacing with the data via their web enabled phone.. or they could have checked it from their desktop at work.. etc..

I think it would work.

Really, you would want a sensor on each seat in the restaurant connected live to the database, so it would show exactly where was full. Obviously some sort of delay built in to cater for calls of nature - say 5 minutes.

10 minutes in Indian restaurants ;-)

a sensor... on each seat... in each RESTAURANT!?!?!?!.... AHHHHHHH... now we're just blowing smoke.. I was talking about something that could actually be done..

Hey I know how about create a website that uses a webcam to scan your face.. and then using face recognition software it would determine what you were in the mood for and have it sent to your work at the predetermined time....

flooey!

That Google would use to display relevant adverts - looking stressed? An ad for a spa. Looking happy? Ads for charities to take advantage of your generous mood!

Right now 2 engineers in the Google-plex are freaking out trying to figure out how you got their idea for "FEAR BAD ASS" (face enhanced area recognition based ad delivery algorithm serving system) ;)
