Idea Nibbles – Idea Collaboration

Patrick Lalande on WordPress

Your ideas should count 

photo_1824_20060728-chance-agrella_320x240.jpg  Everyone has ideas.  Ideas by themselves are worthless.  Ideas coupled with action is enough to change the world.  No matter how small that change may be, the ability to change the world is power. 

I desire a pairing of ideas in the minds of the common man with the hands and minds of the people that can get things done.  Distributed power for the betterment of all participants. 

There are many reasons ideas do not get acted upon.  the most prevalent is the person hasn’t the skills or the knowledge of the processes needed to move past the idea stage.  This leads to an opportunity for anyone to contribute whatever skills and knowledge they have towards advancing promising ideas. 

How should that be done?  Who decides what ideas are promising? What roles need to be filled?  Who should control the collaboration process?  When and how will the “work” get done?  How will trust be generated?  How would values be assigned? Who accepts what responsibilities and how should each step in the process be verified?

Offered for Thought – The First Nibble

I could ask a lot more questions but instead I’m going to throw this out to my readers.  I have an idea for a video game.  By itself, the idea has no value.  The value of this game could extend from social networking sites, to widgets and, all the way to video consoles.  I believe it could change the way the common man plays, works and learns.  I believe it would be a very big marketing tool with a very broad application range.  It is simple in concept and would be relatively easy to implement. 

Who would interested in the making and marketing, and distribution of this game or in the collaboration of other such projects?  How many people are willing to spend the time to actually contribute skills, knowledge, and/or effort on the chance that it may be big.  Who would be willing to spend speculative money (ie: venture capital), even small amounts as an alternative of their time or efforts?  I want to know.  If interested, please tell my of your interests in a reply to this post.  I’ll keep you posted by updating the progress of this project, and any others, in future “Idea Nibbles”.  Thank you, ahead of time, for your considerations.
