I think Simon has correctly grasped what I was trying to tell. I do side-projects for learning and self-growth. For those type of projects you don't need something new, you need to implement the stuff yourself to learn something.

Ok, I'm a happy and positive guy and sometimes I read stuff that have a very firm grasp of the obvious and I can not resist the urge to respond sometimes. In this case I just had to do it. Sorry if it makes you feel uncomfortable.
So, the whole post in one sentence is something what we all already do like:
Look around and re-build stuff that you haven't build before and find interesting?

No worries man. You have the right to express your opinion. Yup, in one sentence the post is presenting something obvious.

But, I was sharing my journey, because even though it seems obvious, and it is, many devs don't take the leap.They know where to look - but don't.
I've known this fact for a while: Re-implement a thing, learn something new. But did I act on it? No.

I guess the point was to kind-of motivate people out there who are stuck at level-0 of a good project - finding a good idea.
