    I would guess that no matter the subject, it probably is covered on the Internet somehow already.
    I agree as well.

    Everyone who wants to emerge as a hero from the dust of the next Internet collapse, should work on information retrieval.

    Indeed. It seems that governments and state organizations are slow in the sharing of data, department. For example, I was looking for an XML/RSS feed recently for localized crime statistics for the UK. Although the data is published, it's not exactly in a scrapeable format. Would have been nice to have got it in a feed ;(

    What is missing from the Internet?

    Or, what will the next big thing be?
    So far we have a way to find information quickly (Google), share videos (Youtube) and pictures (Flickr), and help stalkers find our whereabouts easily (MySpace).

    What is lacking? What will be the next hole we find filled? Or, what would be cool to have that a site hasn't already covered?
