Appealing to the crowd, for love and money

Support My Idea at Cambrian House I'm cursed with an unfortunate combination of personality traits: lots of ideas, but not a lot of entrepreneurial spirit. I've not been one to quit my job and start a company based on my own idea, or at least not yet.

I was happy to discover Cambrian House -- a site where you can post your bright ideas, have them competitively rated by other members of the site, and if your idea is highly rated, it will be developed, launched, and marketed. All you have to do is sit back and wait to collect your royalties.

Of course, the business has to be a success first. I may not get rich, but it's an interesting angle. Cambrian House is a crowdsourcing site -- soliciting not just ideas, but also many of the elements of execution, from code to logo and marketing materials.

In effect, CH supplies all the get up and go that I lack when it comes to followthrough on a bright idea. You can support my idea -- "Shared Strength" -- here. Your vote gets me one step closer to collecting my royalties... and retiring in the style of the successful entrepreneur to which I have always aspired.

I went to the website. In my current state of mind I just was'nt interested in falsifying another identy to leave a comment.

:: your idea
I think you may have somthing. I do think utopian socialism is having a revival(post enron and others mistrust in corporations) The young twenty somthings are already adopting this idea. There are neighborhoods both physical and virtual where this type of community is happening. It really isn't so far out and it works. Think about community gardening.
I would look in areas around Vancouver for adoption this kind of idea. You may like looking at the website. Okay, they may look like hippies, but they are sponsored by the likes of Bryght and Raincity. Young progressive and techy.
For and older observation look up the original Moravians in NC. or how about Jane Addams Twenty Years at Hull House
