Half Baked or a Full Dozen? August 20, 2007

Posted by malthusio in Uncategorized.

The half-bakery is a neat site (http://www.halfbakery.com/) that is very much in the spirit of open source… except that they don’t necessarily produce anything… and it’s not necessarily any good. But as the saying goes, it’s “right at least twice a day” (imagine a broken clock). Some of the ideas are just really funny. Others have legitimate potential for invention, or in the local dialect, are “bakeable”. Things that have already been done are referred to as “baked”.

The user community gives feedback on ideas through comments and a voting system. Good ideas get “BUN” (baked good), and bad ideas get “BONE” (yucky fish-bone). The idea being that you keep fresh baked buns, and throw away yucky fish-bones. This site is similar to the original idea behind RFCs
