I once had an idea for an online educational program that didn’t require massive amounts of money, nor a history of good grades, or even a concrete deadline to complete by.
Months later, Google came out with its certificate programs.
Free, practical, and accessible.
Does this mean that Google stole my idea?
Am I pissed that they didn’t give me credit?
The reality is that unexectuted ideas are a free for all.
And demanding ownership or credit of an idea you didn’t take action on is kind of a dead end.
