Default Another idea stolen

http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?s...tid=217&tid=17

If you search zmd, you'll find my post a while back discussing this very thing. Google has more money than me so they win.

It's been about a year since I thought up another idea...but I've been unable to obtain a backer to get my foot in the door <img src=smilies/banghead.gif>

And it's been a few years since my improved electronic voting machine idea...which the new voting machines in my county are sort-of using.

Damn damn damn damn damn I need a bunch of zmd nerds to come live over here and help me program this stuff.

I have this idea where you get free sandwiches. It's like peer-to-peer file transfer, but with sandwiches. It's illegal of course, but everyone who uses it will swear it's legal. I'll be indifferent but end up getting free sandwiches.

If you could come up with an idea like that and post it here, that would be awesome. Your idea would be stolen, and then we'd all get free sandwiches. That is, until the SMAA (Sandwich-Making Artists of America) steps in and starts suing people...

I thought about a world where we had replicators, like in Star Trek... and I bet you there would be sandwich piracy. You make a copy of a sandwich, say, a Subway Toasted Italian.... well, now Subway loses out on that sandwich because you replicated it. After all, Subway has rights to that sandwich. Instead of downloading ROMs, we'll all be downloading sandwich recipes in ROM format so that our replicators can emulate Subway. Zophar's domain will have a strict policy as not to allow the sharing of sandwiches (or the discussion or links to sites that have stolen sandwiches) in the threads. People will be begin hacking sandwiches, adding all kinds of ungodly things like pineapple and walnuts to an otherwise perfectly good club sandwich. Many will speak out about this big ethical issue over whether or not it's right to steal that copy of information...

I want a replicator.

Default Speaking of...

My friends and I were talking about http://www.lik-sang.com/info.php?cat...d259dd3bd45f93this</A>, to the letter, at E3 2004. I like to think some industry spy picked up the idea.

You know, when I was a kid, I was like, why isn't there a type of radio that you have to pay to get all kinds of channels. At the time I was thinking cable, like cable TV. My parents thought it was crazy, and no one would ever pay for it!<img src=smilies/cry.gif>

Looking for a [snip]

Edit: I thought about it, and yeah, that's a sandwich request.

Hey, it's a rule.

Sandwich Pirate's Song: One smart nerd replicates some food,
YO HO HO AND A SUBWAY SANDWICH!

Sandwich DRM chips would be placed in your sandwich, and you'd have to use a program like JHymn, which will be renamed "JBread"

My proposed futuristic links of the site:

<font color=red>Sandwich Hacks</font>: Subway, Quiznos, Conventional, Invented.
