If This Then That - http://ifttt.com/ - is a good step toward filling the Social Sync hole, even if it is a little clunky (since you'd need to set up a separate recipe for every sync scenario).

Agree - it would be nice to have a site that 'just works' though, with less/no flexibility.

I use a proximity (WiFi) app on Android - it's pretty decent - phone doesn't lock and password manager active when connected to my specific WiFi node & MAC address.

Interesting - do you have a link / app name?

Calling it a 'dump' seems rather downbeat (a dump is "a site for depositing garbage"). Something like idea corner' would be more encouraging.

It's a good analogy, IMO. You don't want to start a garden of those ideas, you want to throw them out of your head, dump somewhere where they won't disturb you and someone else may just take them.

Yes - true. I'll reconsider for the next post.
