Owning an Idea

Ideas cannot be owned. They belong to whomever understands them. - Sol Lewitt
(thanks to dataisnature for the quote)

Maybe ownership of ideas should take into account the way they are acquired - i.e. by understanding them.

Well it won't surprise you to know that I agree fully with this quote...

And given that I believe there are some ideas more people should own - or at least explore, it is incumbent on me as a communicator to boil those ideas down, package them and relate them in a way that makes the ownership and distribution of ideas easy!
