Where do you get your ideas?
In my case, ideas for new features often come to me when I’m away from the keyboard. For example, the idea for FeedDemon’s new "panic button" – which appears to be a popular feature – popped into my head in the unlikeliest of places.
I’m embarrassed to admit it, but the "panic button" idea came to me late at night, just before I went to bed. As I was…uhhm…sitting on the can.
As you can imagine, I wasn’t thinking about FeedDemon at the time. Yet without any warning, I suddenly had a fully-formed feature in my head. I guess you could call it pot luck.
How about you – do you ever get ideas in unexpected places?
