Open Source Idea's, Defeat the patent system.

OpenBrick Community: Ideas

Not much here yet but a damn good idea.

Thanks again to Hans for the link.

From the site:
This section contains ideas published by OpenBrick users. Publishing and idea with some example of implementation allows to destroy the possibility of having that idea patented by others. Since we all have 10 ideas per week and since writing a patent takes 2 days, we will never have enough time to patent all our ideas. It would be very sad if someone else did and remove our possibility to use our own ideas. So, please publish your ideas here: this will make patents from Hitachi, IBM, etc. invalid.
