I just read an interesting article in the New Yorker about Intellectual Ventures, a company that brings various groups of smart people together and has them discuss problems and solutions, then patents the ideas.
I would be very interested in having a similar group myself, perhaps one that meets once a week. Would anyone be interested in joining me? I would prefer to do it in person with 3-5 people, but I’m willing to do phone or chat if that is the only way we can try it. If you are interested, post your interest in the comments or email me.
