Partner with guys at Halfbakery and create a clone. But everytime someone adds a croissant they also pledge time or money (or both) to bake the idea. By the time the idea bubble up to the front page, you have enough resource signed up to bake the idea.

Maybe this could be the first idea to bake this way. Do comment if this will work. If not. why not ?

Classic pledging interface. Projects ask for money; you pick how much you pledge. and get some sort of gift/connection with the artist. [jutta, May 14 2009]

       I can't think of many ideas which would benefit from 5 minutes each from 1000 people. You need a few people to donate a lot of time not many people to donate a tiny bit.

       also, some ideas here should not, or could not, be baked.   

       i like the "donate" concept, and think it should be applied to more deserving ideas. To raise enough money, I think it should only debit peoples' paypal accounts when some minimum number of people have offered to contribute, so the minimum amount of funding offered, if any, would be substantial.

       // Partner with guys at Halfbakery
Good luck with that.

       Heh! You don't think the guys at the HB will buy in to this then, Jutta!

       [Jutta]Was that refering to 'guys' or that you wouldn't entertain the idea?   

       I thought the point of a clone was that you didn't need a partner.

       Maybe it's the "s" that's the problem.

Make an appropriate phrase out of the following two words:
  

       Herding
Cats

       I already consider myself partnered with the guys at Halfbakery, guys not being the guys who write stuff, but the vast number of spooky defense engineers, political scientists, evolutionary theorists and such who lurk on these pages seeking grist for their respective mills. I submit my ideas in the same manner that one might leave a lovely baby at the doorstep of a wealthy family. The family then raises the baby to successful adulthood, at which point he seeks out his real father, they fight with lightsabers, he loses a hand, masters the force, and eventually turns his father from good to evil just in time to defeat the Emperor, except that his dad lives to rule the pleasure planet Erogiturn, and I am still only a little evil.
