Do you have an idea that will change the world?
Does it seem like it would make great science fiction? Except that you are a programmer, and so you could just build it? Is it a vague idea that is hard to explain?

This talk is my observations on the experience of attempting to build my omega project, and also my observations on famous Omega Projects attempted from history.
