Just as a small start I've made a collection of notes using a
collaborative editor which I will dump project ideas into. Anyone
with the link can add notes, please try not to remove any notes that
are not yours. Its not going to scale, but its better than nothing.

Its some pretty heavy javascript, but I trust the developers not to
include any (stupid) external scripts.
