This startup is…Just an idea


I would love to watch a video with friends and pause easily


An app where we can vote on a video, watch, have it pause automatically based on audio, and record the commentary


A social video watching app



I just finished my first video with Teresa on Exponent and thought.. hmm.. wouldn't it be great if we watched a video together and could share/comment?


How to create virality: You invite friends and the only way for them to become users and launch their own popsicle is that you have to first do a video with them and then earn a certain score. The score is calculated on the number of pauses, re-starts, sounds recorded during (laugh, cry, talk, etc) etc.


Users that get more popsicles can invite more users to the platform. The users can also sell invites if they like and earn a cut too.

This page represents just one of the many startup ideas that I post publicly. I tend to do this ideation work a LOT thanks to my ever curious brain. 

Very few of these turn into reality but they represent fun thought experiments that I sometimes review, add to and explore further. 

I share this stuff freely online because ideas are meaningless without execution.

If you like the idea on this page, and want to work on it, feel free. 

Let me know if you do. I might want to join in!

Ideas are fun, but they don’t turn into reality without a community to support them. Leave a reply below if you have something interesting to contribute – even if you think this idea sucks!
