The next facebook

Need ideas for websites I could build. I am going to be in between jobs in the next few months. That gap could be a week or it could be a year depending on how long it takes to find my next gig. During that gap I would like to stay productive. I am a project manager, but I can write decent python/js/css/html. I need ideas for websites I could build that 1) I would have fun doing, 2) Would be something I could talk about in interviews, and 3) Could maybe produce a community, traffic, or a few dollars.

This thread about Ravelry
inspired my ambitions for a new project. Since I am going to be in between jobs for an indefinite amount of time, why not start building something. I have many ideas of my own but I thought I would put it to the green for inspiration.
I am open to any concept for a website. My personal interests hover around making music, fitness, reading, kids, project management, travel so that may be a good place to start. But I am also open to any other interesting project idea. And yes I know that ideas are a dime a dozen and it is all about execution. I am not worried about the execution. I just want ideas.
What are are some ideas for website projects that you have had? What are some niche areas that haven't been tackled or have been poorly executed. I am not looking for something grand. I am looking for ideas that are simple and can be understood by my grandmother. Help me find my next project.
