TinyDisk blows my mind by how it works.

TinyDisk is a program from saving and retrieving files from TinyURL and TinyURL-like services such as Nanourl. It overlays a write-once-read-many anonymous, persistent and globally shared filesystem. Once something is uploaded, only the database admin can delete it. Everyone can read it. No one can know who created it. Think of it as a magical CD-R that gets burned and placed on a network.

Yeah, I know it’s not very useful in practical sense but as a concept, it’s a great example of out-of-the-box-thinking.
