I’m Not a Real Friend, But I Play One on the Internet
Loved the geek insurance post, which (apologies if Im being presumptuous) I assumed was written as a provocation.
Well consider me provoked.
I agree with the comments that its hard to calculate risks and even harder to quantify claims on IP. That said, if there was in fact a way to apply actual numbers, I might have a worthwhile case study for you.
Im rolling out a website in the coming weeks called The ideaLists: its an online idea marketplace that acts as a match.com of sorts for creatives and clients. Ive spent the past two months building it in such a way that provides what I hope can be a balance allowing users to share IP along with a certain level of protection.
Now, this whole project is an experiment of sorts and Im always interested in furthering a good experiment.
Check out the site FAQ please and if youre interested in discussing ways to try to prove geek insurance, Ill send you a site invite (alpha begins rolling out next week) to view the site and we can chat further about how it might be applied.
