What Would You Build?

over 6 years ago from , Chief Product Officer @ CompStak

Pretend your current company never existed. You have a blank slate job wise...

You have the perfect team – hustler, hacker, designer – and they are all geniuses. You trust them completely...

You each have a pile of money – so you can live comfortably for one year with zero income...

What would you build?

    Probably something non-technical, like an Afro-Cuban jazz big band. Or maybe my own comic book company.

    Design and sell giant penises for home interior. Something beautiful.

    I love what I do, but if I had a year's pay and all the time in the world, I wouldn't spend it in front of a computer. I would work on some photographic projects I have in mind

    Anything that involves space flight, aviation, robots, blowing shit up, lasers = dream job.

    I'd try to form a new and open curriculum for mastering all that web and mobile stuff we're doing nowadays. At least for my home country Germany, where nearly no teaching institution gets it! Getting as many designers and developers together, to whom we look up to today and who are (already teaching) leaders in the industry.

    Yes, that's what I'd do.

      Don't worry, it's not just Germany. I have the impression most institutions are about 5-10 years behind the times

    My answer would probably vary based on my mood...

    I'd either build a series of story-based video games (like Heavy Rain) or I'd open a vintage motorcycle build/restore shop.

    Artisan gaming keyboards and mice. Product design, custom drivers etc.

    Games. Artsy games. Perhaps an MMO.

    That's an easy one: another variation of Flappybird. With lasers!

    But really, probably a space exploration company. With really cool spaceships. And Iron Man suits for the astronauts.
