A friend of mine once dreamed of making a website that made it easy for people to create polls that would gage how the public felt about many different topics. So-called Web 2.0 sites are popping up all over the place now, and today I discovered one on social polling called BuzzDash. I think it is along the lines of what my friend wanted to build.
I wonder how much money sites like this make off of advertising. I am constantly kicking myself for not building a site like this myself. I keep telling myself I am going to make some website after I get better at developing with Ruby On Rails. I am one chapter away from finishing Ruby for Rails, and after that I will likely try one of my many crazy ideas.
