About this site

The Internet Wishlist is a collection of ideas for apps and websites people are wishing for. Think of it like a suggestion box for the future of technology. Ideas range from web to mobile, realistic to imaginary, and helpful to humorous.

In a world of me-too startups, we hope this project inspires entrepreneurs, developers and designers to innovate and build the products and features that people want.

To contribute, post an idea on Twitter and include #theiwl in your tweet.
