Idea Braindump

Ideas I've thought about a little more

Read Japanese Online - graded Japanese reading material

Grab real-life Japanese novels/short stories from Aozora Bunko (the Japanese Project Gutenberg), run each story of them through a morphological analyzer, grade them on difficulty and present them to Japanese language learners as a series of lessons. Sell it as a SaaS for say $20-$30 per month.

Productive Vim - ebook about the vim text editor

An ebook on using vim productively, covering techniques and tricks for making the most of vim for developing dynamically typed languages like ruby/python. Around 100 pages, sold for $30-$40.

Haskell For Rubyists - ebook about learning Haskell for ruby programmers

Ebook about learning the crazy stuff in Haskell geared towards ruby programmers who are already somewhat comfortable with a few functional concepts. Same sort of pricerange, $30-$40 for about 100 pages.

GetBooked - Like Highrise but for small freelancers (rather than professional salespeople)

Not sure how exactly this is going to be better than Highrise, but I'm thinking something a little simpler with a fun interface, a bit like freckle for your sales process.

Robot Tutorial Site - A site collating high-quality arduino/robotics tutorials

I like this idea! High quality tutorials, with clean code samples and an easily orderable BOM with affiliate links. More intense tutorials could be paid for via a SaaS model (like Destroy all Software).
