Give Up All Your Promising Ideas Online for a Buck

from the hmmm... dept

Have a good idea, but not the drive, money, desire, knowhow or time to try to turn it into something? Why not give it up to a website that will give you some cash in the form of gift certificates? The whole thing seems a bit odd. You give up your idea, and they rate the value of it and tell you how much you get. The author of the article submitted some ideas and got a dollar out of it. Apparently the site will pay up to $100 for really good ideas, and will cut you in on a percentage of any future revenues. It’s not a bad idea, and they talk about using the system to work with corporations to improve some of their products via customer feedback. The question is how well any of it will work.
