There is no going back, that is it I've hit submit. I am interested to hear anyone else's thoughts on the three ideas I have just submitted. If I get 4ip funding I will definitely need some help developing them and if I don't get any funding I'm sure I'll benefit from the community's take on why or why not they would work...
I am confident that no one will "rip off" my ideas and if you do, all I ask is that I am appropriately credited: Claire-Frances Lennon (and I of course expect, in keeping with community spirit, an appropriate percentage of the millions of pounds you will make!).
I firmly believe in the open source movement and all that it stands for. All of my ideas have of course been influence or inspired by other people, things and places around me. It is sometimes difficult to discuss 4ip and it's potential without talking about specific projects and ideas. Now that these have been submitted, I offer them to the community as examples, to discuss if anyone is interested. I look forward to the community's feedback while I am waiting to hear from the commissioners. I think 4ip is about ideas, sharing, networks and communication...

Movie Music Charts: A website that charts the soundtracks from the top ten films at the box office each week. It would include links to buy cinema tickets, track downloads, reviews and a weekly podcast chart show with interviews and live sets.
Skins - The Trail Tail: A video podcast series documenting the drug trail from the narrative of a Skins episode to international drug barons. Think The GAP Year for the socially responsible globe trotting investigative reporter.
