I have long since scoured the internet for simply the most productive forum for inventing for profit. And without a doubt, the most active internet forum on the web today (and likely for some time to come) is I-Spot.
I have been a member there for nearly a year. I've seen people come and go. But there are a couple handfulls of active members, who make it fun just being there. The place is already well-known for being the most informative, user-friendly resource on the Internet for people with common questions about the entire process of taking an idea from start to finish.
I'm proud to be a part of all the activity. I visit the place on a regular basis. I would encourage anyone interested in the invention process to check it out, when you get a chance.
And, tell 'em Scrupulous sent ya!
Happy New Year
