What I think this forum lacks is a section where you can discuss ideas that you have.
"Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." - Roosevelt
New people here will discuss how to become a developer etc and have questions, but we need to be thinking creatively, where you can just discuss any idea you have for web development, and people can comment on whether it's realistic, if they see any flaws in the idea etc.
I get a rush when I think of a new idea with web development, but so far it's been quite boring, I enjoy being creative. Rarely are ideas good enough or realistic, or they've been done before, it's rare to have a genuinely new idea, been there done that, it's harder than you think.
But I think there's a lot of money to be made if people are to be creative, I just see new things in the industry that are fads, technology advancements are often trivial (like the iPhones new features), what we need is a whole discussion board where people can debate. Maybe that's one of my strengths, I am creative, you may know a lot and be a good web dev, but if your not creative you'll probably just get bored making the same old websites.
The education system is very uncreative IMO, at college it's usually outdated projects, boring stuff that doesn't give anyone any inspiration, it creates obedient workers to be used, but not working for themselves.
