Store ideas for more interesting conversations

Many conversations follow very predictable patterns. “Hey, how are you?” “Fine, you?”, even when we have so many interesting things happening to us. But when we are stressed or spend the last few hours thinking about some homology group, we might not remember them. So, why not store them in an app?

At the moment I am storing them in Google Notes, but this is unsatisfactory for a few reasons:

  • Clutter: I have way too much in Google Notes already
  • Hard to lookup based on topics. I currently save notes with the name of the person as title, but I would like to keep a story for people interested in coding, feminism, that latest techno artist and then have it appear for every person I tagged with this previously.

Maybe this could even be a business. One could for example scrap the Instagram timelines of people for interests. Then strangers would just need to exchange their Instagram names and would get a ton of shared interests to talk about. Or one turns this into a more personal CRM for businesses.

I don’t have time to do it right now, but write me if you like this idea too (no strings attached). My email is (* github user name *)
