Invention sharing?

Posted on Friday July 27, 2012

A post-graduate student at Oxford University designed the website Marblar, which can be best described as the “Facebook for inventors”. The networking site is targeted to investors to connect and share ideas with other scientists, and to explore the commercial application of inventions.

For consumers, the benefits are obvious - great minds working together to generate better, more innovative technological applications. However, what are the implications for scientists and the scientific process? How will confidentiality be regarded on the site?

What do you think? Does the networking platform have more positive or negative aspects?
