    I had an idea about a site i wanted to start, It's going to be a social networking type site but i have no idea where to start. I want a web 2.0 look and a way to have a registration database based on universities.

    I don't want to say too much, but then again i also don't know how i would start designing or having a site like that designed, while ensuring that no one takes my idea. But, i also know i don't have the experience to take on a project that large myself.

    I'm assuming you have a fairly large budget for this?

    a great start would be facebook.com. Or if you are in a daring mood try myspace.com.
