Nice reflections. I have a folder in my PC called New Ideas where I deposit the ideas coming to my mind that I think are worthy to put to the test someday (by someone). I like the idea of an Idea Depository. The idea of a “gentleman agreement” though is maybe very idealistic, unfortunately. I understand it coming from a Finnish mind. The Finns are the most honest persons I have known (I lived in Kuopio for a while). I think the idea is great, but without a kind of regulatory mechanism to protect other’s ideas not many people will deposit their ideas hoping they could test them themselves. Who knows how many ideas have passed away with their creators in the history of mankind?
