    • Why Stealth and Confidentiality Are Overrated Overrated Sramana Mitra Founder, One Million by One Million 1Mby1M.com
    • Entrepreneurs are Obsessed with Confidentiality
    • Common Misconception: “If I discuss my idea, someone will steal it!”
    • Reality: Ideas are a Dime a Dozen
    • Ultimately, it is better that you are out there executing on your idea than sitting in stealth mode, noodling on it.
    • You NEED Feedback
    • Most importantly, you need feedback from potential customers
    • Discussing your idea with knowledgable people gives you access to perspectives that may be useful in advancing your project
    • Unless you have algorithms or core technology inventions that are worth protecting, it is really an execution game.
    • Most Software / Internet ideas are not worth protecting.
    • But many are worth executing on.
    • Stop obsessing over confidentiality, and get moving!
