Right on point… I have had many ideas I thought had amazing potential, but seeds are abundant while actual flourishing plants are rare. I spend a lot of time trying to gradually nourish my ideas into something real. I have a lot of them on github where they have come a long way and progressed a lot but are still just seedlings. github.com/derekmc
When you’ve put significant effort into progressing an idea that’s when you see how far they really have to go. Unfortunately our patent system encourages people to think their is more value in claiming an idea than nourishing and sharing it.
