Approach to evaluate ideas

Just reading an interesting structure to evaluate ideas by Evan Williams (summary by FoundRead):

  • Tractability: How difficult will it be to launch a worthwhile version 1.0?
  • Obviousness: Is it clear why people should use it?
  • Deepness: How much value can you ultimately deliver?
  • Wideness: How many people may ultimately use it?
  • Discoverability: How will people learn about your product?
  • Monetizability: How hard will it be to extract the money?
  • Personally Compelling: Do you really want it to exist in the world?

Might come handy (I plan to check my latest ideas against these points).
