I never imagined it would be edible.

A website where you can mention your skills, qualifications and what you've accomplished and then people can tell you what you should do and people can vote on the suggestions
  [vote for,

(Evil suggestions would be filtered out and deleted.)

I have a limited set of skills that are useful for particular situations but I might not the imagination to build what I should work on that would benefit the majority of people.

People can also donate money to a suggestion, which shall be awarded to the submitter if they pick that suggestion and do it.

       That site's taken, but this is a neat idea. [+]

       If this is a passive system then it is similar to Linked in or any CV type service   

       More interesting would be an auto-aggregator that groups and classifies your proffered skills

       I think the only "new" thing here is that people can offer money that will be awaded to someone who takes their suggestions. Fortunately evil suggestions would be blocked so nobody could say "Hey Sam, I'll give you a dollar to eat this worm."

       Cue Liam Neeson.   

       I missed the reference. Some role he played?

       "I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you." —Liam Neeson, Taken   

       Oh. I was hoping it was something about eating a worm.   

       When the earth is turned in spring
The worms are fat as anything.
And birds come flying all around
To eat the worms right off the ground.

       Birds like worms as much as I
Like bread and milk and apple pie.
And once, when I was very young,
I put a worm right on my tongue.

       I didn't like the taste a bit,
And so I didn't swallow it.
But oh, it makes my Mother squirm
Because she still thinks I ate that worm!

       Best I can do (linky).

       Ooh, there's good eating on those!

       It made headlines at the time but I can no longer find the news story.
Some guy stopped a bank robbery with that 'specialized set of skills' quote.

       [+] There are two conflicting verses in the book of Proverbs (chapter 26 according to the Christian division): My translation:   

       Do not answer an idiot with his stupidity, so that you won't be like him, yourself.   

       Answer an idiot with his stupidity, so he won't consider himself smart in his own eyes.   

       I think it is saying that if you don't know when to apply which of these suggestions, you should be worried that perhaps you yourself are the problem.   

       On the other hand, if you correctly realize the stupidity in the idiot's words, then already you are not one.   

       So it all depends on how much lack of imagination you have when using this website. If it is total, you might want to be worried that the participants are actually just having a go at you. But if you still have some, and only not enough, then you could probably discern the good suggestions from the bad suggestions and not just leave it to the public vote or greed.

       a1's worm poem is "The Worm" by Ralph Bergengren, if you were wondering (I was).
