My latest startup idea: integers as a service.

IaaS will be a global service, where users can store any integers they like, and later retrieve them. Integers can be given names and you can search by name or value.

As a for-pay extra service, there will be a feature where, when you store an integer, you can get its factors from the service.


@liw do you charge more for large integers?

sum $ map (\(x, c) -> 2^(8*x)*toInteger c) $ zip [0..] $ map ord "just curious, not gonna write a git-annex special remote or anything"


@joeyh I'm thinkg a freemium model where you get some number of digits for free, and after that you pay a buck a digit.
