I know, I know... it's the buzz word of the decade, but I think it's worth exploring. If I can access or link my account here to Twitter, Google Reader, Facebook, etc. it makes me more likely to contribute. It connects my existing social circles to new ones, that kind of integration allows me to carry over my existing social capital.
I'm making a lot of suggestions and demands, many of which may not be practical... but why not think big? Right?
Color me hipster, but I love my gmail account... similarly, I love my Google Voice account, despite the fact that it doesn't get nearly the traffic that I wish it did. How can I search my address book contents here? How can I integrate my moots with my email compositions? Does it have to be a static link? Or can I respond to a moot via email (this could be any email client really)? What can I attach? Can embed google widgets? What about google docs? Responding to a question with a linked google docs spreadsheet could be increasingly powerful... especially if that's linked to a form that collects data from users.
I love cross app integration... facebook status updated via twitter is brilliant. Is there a way to allow users to automatically post tweets about their latest moots? Similarly, could I tweet to a moot? If the question was simple enough, could I designate a twitter account that was directed towards a selected moot that I was following?
Like Tiwtter, how do I share with friends/family/co-workers the moots that I've posted, or responded to? Can I embed a moot on facebook (also, can I embed a moot in blogger or wordpress?). Maybe users can't respond from within facebook, but at least they can see what I'm writing and talking about... they can see the conversation. Can I find groups or contacts? Can I seamlessly integrate the photos/video content from facebook into a moot?
Blogger & Wordpress
Can moots be RSS friend? Can they be embedded in a blog? Can I easily direct readers to a moot? Can I encourage them to respond to my ideas/concepts by asking a moot.
Following the trend of Twitter and Facebook, how can I @a_user that I want to include in my thoughts?
I'd love a firefox plugin that would allow me to bookmark while surfing, and without being logged in.
