I've been thinking a lot about different things lately and thought one thing that might be kind of cool for cboard to do is to have a project that everyone could contribute to in some way. It would not only be a learning experience for a lot of people, but it would also be fun to do. Even people working on current projects could just put in a few tips or help out in small ways if they wanted.
I was thinking of a few things that we could possibly do that would allow a lot of different areas of expertise:
net browser that incorporates DirectX/OpenGL with a scripted language for the sites so you can have interactive GL/DX-driven websites...something I haven't seen before
a small game of any sorts
a massive game in 3d with tons of functionality
multiplayer games (to get the networking people to show off some of their stuff)
any other ideas would be cool to hear.
-and btw, so i don't get flamed (as much, hopefully)-
if you think this is a bad idea, sorry, I just think it would be kind of interesting to see what we could produce here collectively.
