My latest Shiny idea: - a subscription plug-in for Wordpress (and Drupal). - retailers of all sorts (digital, storefront, mainstream, etc.) can tap into it to get product data relevant to their products (photos, descriptions, weight, etc..) - they can import products instead of typing them in themselves - they can also post their products to defray their subscription costs (and populate this shared database) - it means labor-stressed businesses can get decked out websites - vendors can "push" their products by getting a account and populating their down data. - use UPC as the look-up - this is like my Alexandria book idea, but updated for all retail products.

Has it been done? Or, done well? How much could the service charge? Would retailers figure it out and buy-in?

       I'd like to see a product like this that was a bit aggressive. Something that goes out with the UPC or ISBN or whatever number, hunts down something on the internet, brings it BACK kicking and screaming, and butchers it right at the cash register. Good entertainment, but the kids can't watch of course.
