Great post! I recently had some thinking time and a lot of side project ideas came up. I went through a similar thinking process, and I'm glad to have someone confirm the process for me. I didn't think of the API exploration one though, and that's a great idea.
Glad I could help, Andy! Thanks for reading. Yeah, APIs are fun. I did end up making that dog/tweet one for fun. I got the idea for API hacking from a few hackfests I've been to.
