    Do you have any writeups on it you could pass along?

      Including a half-finished patent application.

      However this gets us into NDA territory.  My NDAs are simple & straightforward, and both-way, so if you have any secrets to share they're protected by the same document.  

      If this interests you despite the NDA stuff, write to me at the email address  
      g2g-public01 (at) att (period) net.  Include your phone number and I'll call back, and we can discuss what happens next.

      BTW, when I call back there might be something unexpected on your caller ID, so don't screen calls by caller ID tonight.

    •  and I should mention... (0+ / 0-)

      .... I'm amenable to open-sourcing it or something similar.

      The original business strategy called for both approaches: Start with a patent and then a) produce and sell a finished product, and at the same time b) provide plans for the functional equivalent that anyone can DIY, and sell components and provide lists or descriptions of components from other sources.

      Option (b) is roughly similar to the way certain computer & software companies have handled open-source operating systems, whereby users can admin their own boxes or optionally pay for tech support.

      Whatever works.

      Anyway, best place for us to start would be to have the conversation, talk about relevant interests & ideas, and see if/where there's convergence about doing something with this.

      BTW, two of the key points of my design are, it conforms to code, and doesn't require licensed contractors to install.
