Product Hunt for abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

The other day I came across Telescope, a product that lets anyone launch their own community site, Product Hunt-style. Just when you think you’ve seen too many Product Hunt for X” sites, someone gives you the ability to generate as many of them as humanly possible.

It’s not inherently a bad or stupid idea, I swear. But every time someone develops some sort of platform that lets you make your very own X”, I get a little terrified at the implications that platform may have on society - or, more specifically, the silly ideas that the platform enables. If the Uber for X” mentality gave us things like this, I can’t imagine what a well-marketed Product Hunt for X” solution gives us.

Because I get bored during my commute sometimes, I came up with a few ideas for Telescope sites that I thought might be good[^2]. Yay for rapid brainstorming!
