Life, the universe and everything, from the perspective of numerous iterations of adreama throughout life.

I posted quite a number of ideas on this blog. In amongst them there might be a profitable product, although there would obviously need to be a lot of product development. My point (I'm getting there slowly) is that these ideas have some value, even if it is only small (e.g. 10p), and if something has value there may well be a business model capable of extracting that value. This concept is not new, I remember a website called ideadollar.com that was effectively the same thing, but I think they went bust. So the question is this, how can companies realise the creative potential of the public to generate competitive advantage?
If you get the sense from reading this blog that I like to think, and you believe that my kind of thinking might be useful to you or your organisation, please get in touch. I offer free consultancy for startups, delivered via email and instant messaging.
This blog is a hotchpotch of my thoughts, opinions, reviews, analysis of idioms, and links to articles that I have come across on my travels.
I would like to write a comprehensive philosophy or metareligion, but I haven't got the motivation. Likewise, I would like to write a book analysing sayings, idioms, phrases, quotes etc.
