#ideaswap hasn’t been nabbed yet on twitter so I am sticking a flag in it like colonists of old, taking #ideaswap for the writers of this world who play well with others. So, if you have any ideas that you just won’t wear anymore, #ideaswap them, its the authorial equivalent of giving to charity. As there’s no copyright to ideas, this should work reasonably well without incurring lawsuits and suchlike. And if more than one person wants an idea, we might have to come up with some kind of system that avoids cyberviolence to determine the new owner.
In the meantime, I am off to scour my old notebooks to see if I haven’t got a forgotten gem to giveaway.
