Making ideas "open source"
I propose the creation of an Open Ideas Initiative -- adapted from the Open Source Initiative for computer software -- which will facilitate the open exchange of ideas, making them free from the constraints of IP laws.
I've tried to implement something on these lines at www.iinspireus.com -- would love to hear from fellow TEDsters!
Closing Statement from Madhav Krishna
Thanks all for your comments!
I agree -- a great idea may be rendered worthless by a poor implementation, and a mediocre idea be rendered great by an effective implementation. However, the sharing of ideas facilitates innovation -- new technology, art and design is borne off the "meeting and mating" of different ideas. That is what I am trying to facilitate.
If you would like to carry this conversation forward, or join forces in creating an 'Open Ideas Initiative', feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
