      I do think this is growing fast enough that they might find some expertise useful. Maybe not, but if they do - as I said - I think there is something to be said about making sure you have the ideas that are lying around. Being prepared is actually a way to keep from being hi-jacked. It often gets hi-jacked because you need to get things done and don't have the ideas ready and someone else done. Naomi Klein talks about this all of the time - this is the principle that fuels disaster capitalism.
