- Keep on working on EclipseFP and other Haskell IDE related ideas. I would like for example to unify the storage of metadata between buildwrapper, scion-browser and eclipsefp, to have one database to would keep library information (definitions, documentations) like scion-browser, AST with types like buildwrapper, usage references like the usage DB in EclipseFP. It could be interesting to try to use that database to drive an IDE and have a clear repository of metadata. But then I'm tired of working on my own on EclipseFP, and when I see that Leksah really has also one active maintainer, I think people are really not interested in advancing Haskell IDEs, they must be happy with Emacs/vi and ghc-mod at a push, so why bother?
- Then I think working on games is fun! I had fun writing Mazes of Monad, and other little games, and I do enjoy playing role playing or adventure games (I can really recommend the last one I've completed, the Longest Journey), so maybe writing a game the reactive way or even for Android like the guys at Keera Studios do would be a good use of my time. Then I remember I'm a programmer that sucks at graphics design and would probably suck as much at game design.
- Games are too trivial, let's do something that will change the world, like work on AI! A few books I've read like Kurzweil's and Hawkins' have been truly inspirational, so maybe I could write some HMM neural temporal gizmo that would become sentient over night!! Then I wake up. People smarter than me and with more time than me are already working on that, so I would not contribute anything anyway. Why don't I help these people by providing a better programming experience, for example a Haskell IDE? Back to idea 1!

Circling through ideas
I can't make my mind up about what to do in my free time (I have some, yes yes). I keep circling between the same ideas, thinking "that would be good", then jumping to the next one.
Ah well, I'll go back to browsing Reddit!
