Ideas, Forums and VoIP

Doc Searls writes:

# Ideas aren't physical. Regardless of the legalities, treating ideas as possessions insults their vast combustive power.
Jefferson put it best:
"The moment [an idea] is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it.
He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me."
# Ideas aren't worth jack unless other people can put them to use.# Ideas won't change the world unless others can improve on them.
# Ideas grow by participation, not isolation.
# Ideas change as they grow. Their core remains the same, but their scope enlarges with successful use.
# Ideas have unexpected results. No one person can begin to imagine all the results of a good idea. That's another reason to welcome participation.

Ideas are the basis of progress
Fertile ideas are the kind which take root and spread seeds.
