All of this is fantastic!! What if this their ideas were put onto a squidoo page?

Any way to limit viewing of the "Big Idea" to participants? I've spent a lot of time on my business plan and big idea and putting it on a Squidoo page for someone to lift...isn't going to happen. But I would like to submit it... What about people who want an NDA until an idea is launched?

If we post the ideas on our closed Ning site, in a group let's say, that should solve the problem. Only folks from our group would be allowed to view it. As for an NDA, would that still be necessary in the closed group? Part of what makes our group special is the tightness of our community. While I wouldn't put my idea (especially one that I've been working on for a while and have a complete blueprint) on Squidoo, I'd have no problem sharing the idea with alt-mba folks. Ideas are a dime-a-dozen. It's all about the execution.

I think this is a fair question, perhaps its only on the Ning, and perhaps we do get some sort of NDA. I think that's what Seth is doing with his group NDA's all around. It might be more difficult to do with the group here, with it being international and what not. Hmm...

As for my ideas, I'd love if someone else stole my ideas and made them a reality.

Matt, I agree about the execution. Don't mind sharing or giving away the idea at all. Just not the details and the execution. NDA not a problem for me, but I know some other folks have raised the issue in other discussions on triiibes, so it will come up here I'm sure!

I agree with willing to share my ideas and even some of the blueprints with Triiibes. After all I really am looking forward to sharing and exploring those ideas with business people who I think would offer great insight. As far as Squidoo goes, I would be willing to share ideas there and have done so already in some regards. NDA not a problem for me either.

For a Squidoo page, I would be more interested in building a lens after we have worked on the "Big Idea". We could build a lens about the idea, how the course contributed to it, how helpful was it... etc. Almost a review of the entire process for others to learn from, mainly to show how to help someone else with their "Big Idea".
