    Not sure if this is the right place for this but I was wondering if there was anything I could do with an idea for a vaporizer if I don't really have much money? How much would it cost to patent? Is it even possible for a single person without a ton of money to do anything with an idea other than sit on it?

    Patent it and sit on it until you have the money together to go through with it?

    Share it here so we can steal it :lol:
    I am intrigued.. But I guess it's something you want to keep on the down-low.
    Maybe contact an up-and-coming company and ask to go into a business partnership?

    Salutations Jared,

    It's been done before. I suggest once in a while it might help if the cannabic community could be the actual recipient of intellectual rights, everything induction which remains to come, for example, and more...

    :peace:

    Salutations Hippie Dickie,

    Hummm...

    Intense question as it's been demonstrated through some recent IndieGoGo campaig that a long time may be required before we finally learn of some details, like how a bowl gets heated while all other components packed around it must be kept cool, for example, etc.

    :2c:

    By chance i re-read carefully, just in case...

    Ah, now that's quite a bit different. Provided this is an adequate quote, of course...

    :D

    So i guess what you're actually asking me, Hippie Dickie, is who did it, where and when, etc.

    So here's my short answer:

    Linus B. Torvalds, Finland, 1991.

    Well, at least i think there's a difference of cost when compared with any Microsoft Windows product and yet Linux still lives decades later, despite its modest origin.

    :peace:

    what i was trying to say, and what was told to me, which i have come to embrace ... ideas are worthless, it is the doing that matters.

    Hi again Hippie Dickie,

    Pardon me if i must differ of opinion! There would have been no open-sourced Linux OS capable of offering an alternative to Microsoft Windows today should ideas have been considered worthless at the time. Actually the Evoke "demos" on YouTube correspond exactly to that, action, with no evidence of a rational plan meant to be followed by solutions to technical challenges revealed by experimentation...

    :peace:

    @Egzoset - but see, that's exactly my point ... Torvalds not only had the idea, he slung a lot of code to bring the idea to matter. Hey, i've got a killer idea for a software agent and assistant, now show me the money, eh? By the way, it is NOT covered by any of the MIT Software Agent group's projects.

    Salutations Hippie Dickie,

    Well, i sense we may share some values though differently, which i guess doesn't matter much to Jared who seems to have a nice idea he just wishes to realize... Being afraid that if he exposes it here it will be stolen, i suppose, etc.

    Since you've definitely got some edge relatively to physical implementation i would find it only natural to leave the matters of patent, finance and organisation to the appreciation of others starting with yourself. Linux was 1 annecdotal event after all. While discoveries are often made by accident during experimental tests, etc, since humans learn from their errors - and it turns out having a plan may help to minimize those...

    :peace:
