Half Bakery Ventures

Actually manufacturing and marketing some of this stuff
  [vote for,

Half Bakery Ventures would be an arm of the Half Bakery dedicated to finding the most ingenious inventions described on the site and actually bringing them to market and selling them. All inventors would receive a percentage of all liscensing and profits per invention that actually sells anything or is incorporated into other projects/products. Half Bakery Ventures takes their cut, spices up the website with the cash from the million inventions sold, and invites all inventors to the Half-Baked Compound in the Hamptons on weekends for BBQs and pool parties - not to mention a yearly convention (bigger than Siggraph) always in a tropical location.

       If you want a website cluttered with teenager eye candy, [coinop29] then please go somewhere else. This one is just fine without it.

       "Halfbakery Ventures" - could be a travel agency that specialises in holidays concerning all things halfbaked.

       [coinop29] I am envious of your Media Lab affiliation.

ninjafishcake, Jun 16 2003

       I've been meaning to ask. Just what/who is "trolling´/ a troll"?
squeak, Jun 16 2003

       no. to be 'trolled' is to be treated in the manner in which you describe. All hail the mighty jutta, etc
