Help with Writing eBook

Hi, I am the owner of a technology website deleted by moderator and love everything to do with technology. I would love to write a relatively short eBook on a technological matter, however I am not really sure what to do it on.
There are various things which I have considered such as The Technology Evolution and Life Without Technology however I cannot come to a deffinate choice.
I do not want to do a tutorial, as I am not that into that sort of writing.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Cheers

Sounds like you want to have written a book.

If you don't have your own passion for an idea, how can anyone here give it to you?

As you have two ideas in mind, why not write both? Then pick what you consider the best for publication. Or publish both. Either in one ebook or two.
But as Starrigger said, it's a decision only you can make.
I've written about 20% of a book so far, but the idea certainly came first.

Hey, at least these guys can form a coherent sentence. Remember Thesaurus Guy, rickymartin213 (whose posts seem to have all been deleted, or I would link to them)?

I found one where I quoted him (though I did not use his proper name). It's my favoritest.

Oh-- that. I quoted that, too:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...3&postcount=38

My assumption was that it was a bot (badly) designed to generate believable posts to raise a post count before the real spam or scam messages began. I reported "him."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chatterbot

When I said "he" failed the Turing test, I really meant that he failed the Turing test.
