    Because I do. I'm looking for a group of people who want to achieve more than a regular life as an employee. Let's create something bigger!

      So what "bigger thing" do you want to create? A social network concept such as twitter or facebook? A new, more efficient programming lanaguage? A more effective search engine? A dashboard-style program to create bespoke pages reflecting your specific interests? Or, .....?

      I would like to create my own LINUX distro, call it "Dirt Simple".
      I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.

      I just had a vision of fleecing some IT people with a bogus money making scheme requiring a nominal initial investment.

      Is this a pyramid scheme? I'd like to get in on the ground floor.

      i doubt whether many IT professionals would have the gall to call themselves a visionary - maybe Steve Jobs, but he's dead so he's not allowed to speak
      the closest to a real visionary amongst the living are Linus Torvalds and Rasmus Lerdorf, and i doubt whether you've tried to contact them - or whether they would want to listen to you

      one doesn't exclude the other - Newton was a vindictive arsehole, but also a genius and visionary

      I'm always on board to help push technological innovations, though you need to define what you're saying ; what exactly is this vision?

      As for the theads main question, i enjoy thinking about the future and what technologies that are out today might evolve into a much bigger market. So in that sense sure, granted i don't something some significant vision for a product that would be as influential as something like the camera, computer or TV. In that sense i'm not, though i am always thinking of products that could exist and the potential that is currently there.
