Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Where to get coders (and not only) for community projects?

An anonymous reader writes: Having a ton of projects drafted but lacking advanced coding skills and experience to create them on my own, I'm now giving ideas to everyone who might want to start them, only to see them realized. i.e., this sex offenders database for my country (all info sources legally obtainable) i.e. air quality statistics (sources available), maybe along with a mobile app with alerts / Location Based Service and lots of other (mostly) community-oriented projects but with monetary potential.

Asking Slashdot: where could I find people with the same mindset but willing to help start out any project and share risks (ie software sucks, nobody wants it, we lost time developing) and gains?. I was thinking of a start-up but I'm on my own as none of my friends share this desire. So, *any* help, advice and critique is pure gold for me. I also have no brilliant idea that might attract investors, I just have ideas on how to make existing things better. Also I do not need money, I need to work, to do things, but if money is to be made as a side-effect off a project, everyone involved get his share.
