Hacked & Stolen - The halted gears of the GrassRoots Machine

The gears of the GrassRoots Machine have stopped turning, because one of the cogs have gone missing. This cog didn't just go missing, it was stolen! This has completely halted the construction of the GrassRoots Machine.

The gears of the GrassRoots Machine have stopped turning, because one of the cogs have gone missing. This cog didn't just go missing, it was stolen! This has completely halted the construction of the GrassRoots Machine.

This is regarding a serious issue about the security of your intellectual property on the internet and your hard drive. Any of the information you type on your computer can be seen and used by organizations that acquire this information. This is why I have halted production on the GrassRoots Machine.

What if you had a big idea, then started drafting plans to build it and all of a sudden you see your plans being launched by another company? What if this happened so quickly that you didn't even finish typing the draft that you were planning to copyright.

To my amazement I turned on the TV to see a commercial called “Members Project” by American Express. I stood there staring in amazement because that was my idea. I was filled with pride that my idea was right there in front of me being announced on TV. The thing that shocked and excited me the most was that it didn't completely line up with the vision I had for this system. I hadn't even finished drafting the document yet, that was just one cog of this major machine that is under construction. At this point I knew I had to keep the status quo and not type anything more. Instead I plan to wait until I build a team of people who can help construct this GrassRoots Machine.

If one cog from this GrassRoots Machine happened to be up by a major company like American Express, you may be wondering how many more great cogs like this are within the GrassRoots Machine system. The cog is like a gear, that adds functionality to the GrassRoots Machine system. Every one of these cogs are products. Within my head I have a whole GrassRoots Machine. A system comprised of Cogs widgets and graphics.

The GrassRoots Machine wants to be built. This grass has been growing for awhile now and it's ready to be harvested. I'm on a quest to build this GrassRoots Machine, and I need to build a team. If you believe your skills can contribute to this group, then come and join me on this business adventure to build the GrassRoots Machine.
