Oh, the naiveté! Startup just relaunched with a slow but fancy search engine (Web 2.0, as always, is dumb but pretty). And despite a "Why Snap is Better" page longer than Jon Schwartz's ponytail, Snap is asking for even more half-baked ideas.

Snap's team is holding a brainstorming contest basically outsourcing Snap's whole business plan. And they've rigged up a nice little Digg-style button for voting on reader-submitted ideas. Some current ideas boil down to "pay 50 cents per referral," "spam school districts," and "fight Chinese censorship."

Still waiting for someone to submit "Use a search box and a button." How about "Don't give people a chance to claim royalties on obvious suggestions?"
