What do feel is the toughest obstacle facing the ground floor inventor in this global environment?

Getting a patent seems unreasonably expensive and time-consuming. Also, there seems little incentive (and disincentives) to share ideas AND profit, as might be accomplished through "micro-royalties."

How much time to you spend per day, per week, or per month on inventing or on invention-related activity?

None yet

Okay, such choices are tough, pick one more if you want or name a new category.

No answer yet

So, are you an: inventor, model maker, industrial designer, patent agent or lawyer, manufacturer, an investor or a dreamer?

I am a dreamer who admires inventors and innovators


Hi, I am not an inventor but I admire inventors and innovators and might attend a meeting just to learn more about the process of inventing and profiting from it.
