Since almost nobody in this business is sane, I recommend to take both the advertisements and the complaints with large amounts of salt. [jutta, Jul 17 2010]

Annotation:







       Doesn't this already exist [link] ? These are the very fellows who send letters back with comments like "...please, mister, for the love of God, stop sending us these Half-Baked ideas..." --- I think they're secretly jealous.

       Yeah, if you can get places whom you pay in order to "market" your ideas to tell you to back off, you know you're *really* crazy.   

       This site is called "halfbakery" to announce that both readers and writers don't take themselves quite so seriously. If you want someone productive and supportive, go with some of the other sites on the list.

       Yes, but the tongue often slips out of the cheek, and says something useful. If you just take it for what it is and don't ask for anything more than what you get, you might find yourself subtly blessed.

       It's sort of maybe already been baked in the form of Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com

       Kickstarter gives existing projects a forum to find backers, and people with disposable income a place to find goofy little projects to back. It may help projects along, certainly, but it's not so much a teaching/wiki thing.

       Isn't this what we already do with the annotation system here?

       "Build or finance" reeks of work!

       of a universe of possibilities There are two (or three dozen) approaches that I immediately think of   

       Universities have technology transfer departments Just advertise at MITs Tech to find an MIT student to bring your idea to their tech transfer department Works on hundreds of Highly regarded successful technology transfer departments You could even rotate the ideas to find the right occurence MIT then UC Berkeley then ETH or Cambridge UK then UMichigan then Stanford   

       Be gorgeously functional unlikely groups you have heard of read the .5b   

       also even I have been approached with funding on an idea (color changing notes) from here I think it was authentic yet Im much too live outside eat from dumpsters ignore grammar to participate which kind of transitions my technology towards highest benefit to humanity
