Prophet and I had a conversation this week, and he asked me what I wanted to do. I'd told him all about the web applications/ideas I'd been working on or planning, such as:
There were probably a couple of others that I can't think of right now. There's a lot of things I have sitting in the wings that I haven't discussed with anybody.
Anyway, Prophet basically asks me what my goal is. So here's my answer:
I don't care about building something like Facebook, or something that competes with some other system... I want to be the place developers come to when THEY want to build something to compete with these other systems. I want to have the answer to being able to build a cool web application quickly.
Don't get me wrong, though: I still want to build an application that's kick ass. I want to be able to say that I built a world-class CMS web application, a Project Management system, and other stuff too.
