If I Only Had a Brain

Posted by: Hammer / 7:55 AM

Tard Patch read the paper this morning:
Gov. Tim Pawlenty on Wednesday announced the first annual Minnesota Cup, a competition for breakthrough business ideas. Sponsored by the University of Minnesota and backed by a roster of business leaders, the contest will award $25,000 in seed money plus free professional services to the idea judged most original and commercially viable. ...

The contest is open to all Minnesotans -- students, tinkerers, small-business owners and corporate cubicle-dwellers. Applications will be accepted online through May 6 at Thirty semifinalists will be chosen, with the presentation of the Minnesota Cup set for sometime in August.

My idea is to wait for someone else to come up with a really good idea, adopt it, then bury the originator under a flurry of lawsuits and spuriously false marketing claims. Do I win yet?


Blogger is going all crazy this morning. First I couldn't publish anything. Then it published the same thing twice. Then I deleted the older post, which had no comments. Instead, the newer post with Ba Ha Ha's and Tard Patch's comments. It's been a rough morning.
