Incorporate some paraolympic games into the regular olympics.
It wouldn’t be that hard to have a few more people in the opening ceremonies, and it would help prove that people with physical challenges are able to compete at a high level as well. A lot of winter paraolympic games look challenging and competitive like downhill skiing, and sledge hockey? And wheel chair curling, I’m sure that’s just as exciting as traditional curling. If these sports were broadcast at the same time as the regular Olympics, I’d watch. And at what cost would it be? Running the Olympics for maybe two or three days more to accommodate the extra events.
As with all half baked ideas there are still a few kinks to be worked out, but hey, that’s why they’re half baked.
With more and more possible employers, family members and those you just generally don’t want to offend on Twitter, watching what you say in public internet areas is getting more important than when it was just your college buddies, and friends you met on the/b/ who you had on your social networks.
Enter half baked idea #5308. Make it possible to create a Twitter list labeled “private”. This list sees all of your posts, but if you use the hashtag #p only those on the private list will receive that tweet. This would eliminate the need for a professional and a private account, as well allowing you to make the kind of off colour remark you only want your friends to see, not so much your mother and boss.
