How about a project that downloads your unread feeds from Google Reader, uses a speech synthesis program to convert them to mp3, adds the mp3s to a podcast server, which you then script to sync to your portable device? Then you can listen to all of your news on the way to work, as read by your choice of a feminine or masculine robot.
If you like that one, wait until you hear about my idea for Google Reader Printer for my poor friends that have no internet connection at their desks.
Hopefully someone else is working on a good Podcast transcriber, like Podzinger. Once there is a great speech to text solution, I can come up with a convoluted name for that.
Okay, these are lame ideas, but someone's got to pick up for that Techquila Shots guy.
