A unique, universal and simple method to share stuff.

  • RSS / Telegram channel / …
  • like a RSS feed, but less technical and more social
  • like a Telegram channel, but not depending on Telegram (thus, it should be independent from any platform)

  • probably Mastodon is the closest thing to my idea yet. Still, too technical.


An audio recorder on steroids.

Any of the following actions should be performed locally, or at least anonymously, respecting the user’s privacy.
  • markers
  • auto-generated keywords based on markers, if applied
  • instantaneous automatic transcription (some type of progressive one, which could analyze the few seconds the user just recorded and immediately parse the text, such that if the one who is recording has lost track of the argument can read his last sentences)

Digital Wellbeing implementations

Interesting and curious integrations which could be implemented in the system Digital Wellbeing app on mobile.

  • a program which sums the length of each audio sent and received (and listened), summing up the time spent recording and listening to audio messages.
  • a program which calculate a percentage of how much each person speak in a call / video-call, like some sort of “ball possession” percentage in soccer games.

Just once

An app which automatizes the update of a profile picture on several different platforms

  • integrate with Gravatar
  • insert all the platforms and all the links, give public profile access, automate the profile picture update
