I want to talk about the next Dumb Idea.
Why do I want to do this? Because I'm getting pretty tired of hearing about the Next Big Thing. It's always coming, it's always here – and it will always be forgotten in the next few months. In many cases it wasn't the next big thing anyway, but of course the various pundits, experts, and bloggers (guilty, here . . .) go on to look for the Next Big thing even when they got the last one wrong.
iPad. DLC. Mahwa. Whatever. I keep hearing what's absolutely going to rock my socks off in the geekonomy.
So I'd like a change of pace – I'd like people to start discussing the incredibly stupid ideas that are going to go down in flames.
