I have seen this attitude a lot over the past several months (in myself too)... ideas pop up, seem wonderful, but the person envisioning it does not have the wherewithal to just do it. Seems that if there was some kind of company that would pay people for ideas, and then use its resources to develop them that it could really make some dough. Like Hollywood paying writers for scripts- the writers don't make much cash, but writing is what they love; the studios make all the $$$. Hmmm
