A good friend of mine and I were discussing the phenomenon of exploring good ideas. I typically start with an idea, explore similar or complementary ideas and sometimes execute on a prototypical exploration of the idea.

I don't have any plans to release a binary. If anyone is interested in moving it forward, let me know.
