Can you find the next Killer App by looking?

Every waking moment of every day, I think about coming up with the next Netscape Navigator or Lotus 1,2,3. The next Killer App. It's not a quest for some cool or innovative app, it's a quest for THE cool and innovative app. Every day... I just realized it now. It's a disease I caught while living in San Francisco in the late 1990s. The problem is that the cure is living through a massive economic downturn, which I escaped to live footloose and fancy-free here in Europe. I may be in trouble.

The question that just popped into my mind is, can you find the next killer app by looking? Am I doomed to wander the technical world searching for this digital holy grail forever?

Just a thought.
