Creativity and Ideas
sometimes we have an idea, in most cases we either forget it or write it on some piece of paper and then forget where we put it.
It’s a good practice to have a system for writing down your ideas and not loosing these peaks of creativity, everyone has ideas sometimes no matter how old you are or how creative you find yourself. I know of people who are buried under the same work for over 20 years and still have great ideas.
Manifesting an idea
While many of our ideas get lost, some do become a reality – in a times of crises we might find our selves with more free time and even have time to act on ideas we never thought we’ll have time to do. Making room and time for trying to make an idea to a reality is not that hard when you are truly organized and can define a time frame in which you are free to act upon your thoughts.
Ideas on the Internet
Because these days we’re spending a lot of time on the web, many ideas might be related to a website currently unavailable and you just thought of, or an Internet service you think you can really use – but it doesn’t exist.
these cases are truly happening nowadays with many web surfers who build new Internet solutions and services everyday – Even though existing for over 10 years the Internet has been the main item in a new age, the information age. It’s most likely that because everything is still new, your idea has yet to be published on the Internet, or has yet to be published on the Internet your way.
Building projects on the Internet
As a web application developer myself, there are four main paths to creating a solution (or a web application / site) on the Internet:
- Downloading a CMS, or a pre written script available for download freely – these includes free blog systems based on word press, drupal, php-nuke and more.
- Paying for a complete commercial CMS or web site building system in which the source is not freely available and you might even pay enough to make the seller end it’s sales of the specified code / system.
- Outsourcing and having a complete human written solution / web application to yourself – there are many forums and websites on this issue on the net, you can go there and find that many people are outsourcing huge projects at cost of well over 10 thousand dollars.
- Build it yourself – start from scratch, learn the basics and start day by day until you get all things done your way.
Choosing your way
Well, start by looking at the four item list above and think (while knowing yourself best) what is the path in which you find yourself more attracted to, I personally chose the forth way for my projects even though I chose the first one for this blog. having to build your own project by yourself might take a lot of time, and if your not in the mood for creation, commitment and development work – you might not find yourself choosing this path.
Thanks for reading, tune in for more information about these paths in future posts.
