This page represents just one of the many startup ideas that I might feel like working on some day. I tend to do this a lot thanks to my overly creative brain. Very few of these ideas turn into reality – though it would be fun to try. I share this stuff online because ideas are meaningless without execution.

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

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

VideoPopsicle / WatchLaughTalk

Idea Stage: Just an idea


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

Hypothesized Solution:

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


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.
