I tend to develop technologies, throw them up on a web site, and see what happens. Usually this leads to someone saying, "hey, cool" and wanting to license it. This is easy because I don't have to worry about building a business, but it's not very profitable.
The heart of RhymeBrain.com is its pronunciation engine, which incorporates some fairly sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms.
Any ideas on where to take this? I don't have any google ads up because they haven't been worth it in other projects. I've licensed the technology to an iPhone developer already.
