Why was this secret? | Derek Sivers
Dream Development stashed this in What If? Why Not? Who Says?
But life is an ongoing experiment, so I decided to make all my programming code and business ideas public and open source, just to see what happens.
I wanted to challenge that fear that someone is going to steal our ideas.
Actually all those business ideas have been posted freely on my site for over two years now, and nobody has “stolen” them, yet. You’re welcome to try. I’ll keep adding more.
Everything is listed at http://sivers.org/projects. Enjoy!
