Gert started thinking about this after reading about an (imaginary) app called LovStat that records how much your partner loves you. It counts how many times he/she brings you a cup of tea in bed, cuddles you, says ‘I love you’, and so on. This allows you to find out where you stand on the Global Lovedness Index.
What’s another app we need? Something Gert has always wanted is a way of saving the time you have left over when you’re early for something so you can use it when you’re running late. Surely a smart young geek could design an app for this? Even better, monetarise it, so that your time is stored in a central bank for a fee and you pay a fee every time you withdraw it. And you could sell your spare time to someone else if you don’t need it.
But then perhaps people would start gaming the system, by arriving so early for appointments that they have days of spare time. There’d be so much of it sloshing round that you couldn’t give it away. Clearly Gert needs to give this more thought… Ideas, please.
