Problem: X

Solution: Y version 1.0

Insert any problem for value X. Insert proposed solution Y. Encourage others to work on Y and come up with Y version 1.1. This is a formula for open source problem solving. Remember to include all research that led you to Y. Also, make sure others include all information you discovered, along with their own when making version 1.1 available to others to work on. And so on, and so forth. As stated in “The Hacker Ethic,” science does this, and has been doing this for many years. Computers came from open idea science.
