General pile of ideas - suggested during pitches

  • DIELAH! - there's cleanlah, trafficlah, so why not DieLah also?
  • GREENSPIRATION! - gamify green+inspiration, but seriously will people get into greenspiration?
  • FREECYCLE ON A PHONE APP - matching people in a phone (how is this not freecycle? why can't i just go on a freecycle mobile website instead?)
  • KICKGREEN - post your good stuff, get points (zonghuan's pitch)
  • GET PAID TO RECYCLE - gamify recycling, because, you know recycling is one of the big rituals of modern life
  • NEGATIVE ERP SCHEME - give cyclist perks (gamifying cycling so more people cycle instead of driving) - surely someone could make a runkeeper for cycling that records all your travels whether cycling or driving and offsets it and gives you score each week for how much you cycled in comparision to driving?
