Resource managementA lot of (web) apps try to do personal resource management (with social sharing), I see their strength, but weakness is that they are still not easy enough to be usable by masses:
too many clicks (and distraction) to get some real thing organized, and more clicks to search and reuse.
I believe current technology is already mature for much better resource management in a more efficient fashion. And I am serious about it.
Ideal thing will be a light UI web serivce, easy to search, organize and reuse resources within 1 to 2 clicks, some support for graph visualization and multimedia, and be open.
