Ugh I really hate wax moths.  So gross; slimed a whole super of stored wax. Eggs, webs, worms.

I haven’t been updating my bee log. This is what’s happened so far this year since April. Eventful!

Season start!

One hive survived the winter, looks strong! Bees flying, pollen coming in, smells like nectar. Todo: Anti-swaming manipulations today.

Asian Dishwashers

Things I would change to sell dishwashers to Asians and have them actually use them for more than a drying rack:

  • Chopstick holder
  • Space the prongs for bowls, not plates.
  • A filter basket that can actually catch rice grains and filter them down to the disposal unit, instead of sticking to bowls.
  • A fan that blows air over the flatware so that it doesn’t get water stains. This seems to really bother people for some reason.

Next time: Grandma, stop storing dishes in the oven. (A steamer mode??!)

Wife asks if I could make a program that continuously adds an item to a shopping cart, locking it so that no one else can buy it. I could, but I’m not. But a fun idea for a mildly subversive service (like ebay snipers).

Airbnb for storage space

See title. Company could provide standardized closets—much like moving pods—that people could place in their homes. Other people could now rent these “storage lockers” from their neighbors. Closets might be collapsable, might be insured, might have internet sensors for humidity and temp. Would definitely have locks. May subcontract to existing pod moving companies to move the pods around, or leave it to the end user to transport. 

Competitive advantage: price is cheaper, storage is closer. Neighbors’ house instead of across the city.

Campfire Televisons

Mark this  ”silly, unfinished.” TVs orient a room, even when they are turned off. I want a sort of TV that will orient a room inwards, encouraging people to face and talk to each other. A campfire.
