Howard Aiken said these oh so true words:
“Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats.”
One thing I learned in decades of working in corporate America and attending a highly rated graduate business school is that Mr. Aiken understated the problem.
Oh, and yes, to answer the question of the fellow in the back waving his arm and squirming in his seat, the inverse is true.
