Take me HOME
The Goal
Friday, May 24, 2013 12:04 PM

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:

  • CS-Project: project management/helpdesk web application
  • CS-Network: master/slave node system to distribute web services, network monitoring, etc
  • CS-CMS: a content management system, similar to WordPress or the like, to let non-programmers to build sophisticated websites
  • TTORP (a.k.a. CS-BattleTrack): a system to do old-school table top role-playing mixed with online resources... or do it all online

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.
