My latest not so bright idea


Big money here for whomever can make it real.

I got to thinking the other day about how useful it would be to be able to somehow have the person you were calling on the phone be able to tell what kind of mood you were in before they answered.

Then I pushed it one step further and realized it would be equally useful — in fact, much more so — if you could know what kind of mood the recipient of your call was in before you made it.

How to do it?

Well, what with the rise of VOIP it shouldn't be impossible for people who know their way around computer code to create an add–on to your number such that it shows an emotion — either by sound, color, ring tone, word or emoticon, whatever — on the receiving end.

The other half of this equation needs more thought but hey, I've taken you half the way there for not a whole lot of investment on your part.

Besides the time you've wasted reading to this point.

But don't worry — all time is wasted, in the end.

I read an article on this technology being prepped for mobile phone use. In addition to knowing the mood of the recepient before the call, you will also have information on the availibility of the recipient (at lunch, in a meeting, etc). Sorry I don't have the link, I read about it quite some time ago.
