Well. I was working on a program and is, again, considering the value of my solution. At this moment it takes me about 10 hours to come-up with something I think is workable. I intended to some amount of time in programming to implement that idea.
Aware of my earlier advocates on urging people to public posting their crazy idea as a counter measure in defeating some of the crazy software patents, I am ready to write up a blog on Prior Art Initiative. Just then, I googled the web and found that there is Prior Art Initiative at here. Unfortunately, following their FAQ, it seems there isn't a definite mechanism in place yet.
At this moment, I will continue as follow:
1. I will create IDs with a form similar to: PA GUID.
- So that it is easier to refer to the prior art.
2. I will document the idea behind the code.
- This is intended to give some idea on the limit of the idea.
3. I will document the efforts in terms of work hours.
- This is intended to provide some effort-measures information that can , hopefully, used to gauge the value of some of today's software patents.
4. I will setup terms that should be followed when implement the idea.
- This is mimic to the general open source terms that given credits to the creator.
I will monitor the progress of the "Open Source as Prior Art" movement and adjust my terms accordingly.
 My first attempt on this is an email to Richard Stallman. In his response, he talked about the criteria of a prior art and is not very postive on what can be done with just an idea. My latest attempt is my comment on an article, possibly, related to Apple - I hope I can find those references. But I am not going to make a big deal out of it.
