Do you want to innovate or imitate ?
It's become too easy to fire up the browser and seek out the search results for answers.
Has it ever occurred to you that the existence of answers mean that it has been done before ?
There comes a time when the search reveals nothing useful. Instead of giving up, you should be excited that you may be on to something new and unique (or merely that the inventor never bothered to post it on the web).
Stop searching for answers and start creating the right questions.
