At yesterday’s PandoMonthly, an audience member asked the golden ticket question: What idea would GitHub CEO Tom Preston-Werner develop if he wasn’t already running a quickly growing company?

Preston-Werner had made it clear earlier that this was pretty much the first time in his life he was no longer in the market for side projects, given his 11-month-old son and several hundred million dollar company. But if he were in the market, he said that near field communication was a huge opportunity, if Apple could only figure that out.

You’ve probably heard the bullish case for NFC before. But probably not quite like Preston-Werner explained it… He even suggests a company name.

For all you budding entrepreneurs out there looking for new start-up ideas, you’re welcome.
