What inventions did you conceive but not do anything about and now it’s too late anyway?
My idea was boring and my explanation of it is more boring still, so I’m blurring it to protect the unwary.
Ages ago I realised that forgetting to attach documents to emails must cost untold amounts of business dollars every year. Especially when a file is super important and the sender goes home for the day before realising their error.
I figured that the solution was to write some code for an email program that would look for words and phrases which suggested an attachment and then prompted the sender to actually attach the document before sending. All that was stopping me was the ability to write such code.
Do I get a cut of the money that’s saved through my idea? Do I fuck.
Was I the first person to conceive of the solution? Probably not.
I’m not bitter but I am very lazy.
