    I have a domain name left over from my old band (we are broken up permanently). I decided that I would put the domain to use by making a new design for it, but I have no idea what I could use the webspace for. I guess I could do a blog, but I was hoping to come up with something innovative or interesting.

    The design is at: http://consistencymachine.com

    Does anybody have any cool ideas for content?

    Good luck with that.

    How about BANS? Can go pretty much with any domain.

    Start a new band? Consistency Machine sounds like a cool name to cover pretty much anything.

    How about some crazy sort of geeky mathematics theory site which strives for consistency throughout the universe?

    ...

    Can you help perfect the Consistency Machine?

    lol :D

    I got it...

    Make it a political forum or aggregate blog site where people talk about how current and previous administrations, congress and entire executive branch of the US system of government is affecting us. How the "machine" of government "consistently" we're all trapped within causes such suffering, especially recently with the credit crunch, banking system and bailout plan.

    A central repository of blogs or forum topics where people join, state their views about government, the ultimate "consistency machine".

    And when times are good, the name still works!

    This project will take forever to complete:

    List all the machines, hardwares, tools, objects, or whatever you can think of (will refer to them all as 'machines' from now on).

    For each of the machine, list their history, how they came about, how they went through revisions, what changed, etc. And if any of the machine died (no longer produced/used/etc), tell the story about how it ended.

    Once they're all listed, make a comparison chart of which machine (from each category) is the most consistent (going through the least amount of changes over the longest period). Make it a winner.

    Start with one category - keyboards, for example (going from x keys to 104 keys to some multimedia keys to some keyboard without printscreen, etc).


    This project is much simpler:

    Make a page where people post their plans or resolutions for the year, have them update the plans/resolutions regarding how consistent they are in achieving their goals.

    (Hey, people are 'machines', too :p -- we work too hard)


    Others? Dunno .. I still have plenty of domains that I could use but never came up with ideas to match the domains..

    On that concept, could be a history of the PC - although technically the only consistency has been "plastic". heh.

    Normally you start with content or a design and then make a design. Now that you've made your first design make others and improve and maybe even get money for it..

    Design your site based on what the content is. Not the other way around.

    To start thinking about ideas, first ask yourself "what am I good at?"

    Write down several things you are good at. Then think about how to teach other people what you know. Done.

    (Ex. Let's say you are good at music, like you say, make a forum for musicians (types, age, location), or make a blog where you post videos or notes about a certain song, and how to play it). If you have the knowledge, put it to use man.
