Sharing is much more important than protecting all of your ideas

Web visionary and CEO of Seesmic, Loic Le Meur, says that online sharing is the great innovation brought about by the Internet. Sharing is changing everything, according to Le Meur, diminishing the divide between peoples, countries, and even the importance of protecting your ideas.

A video interview with Le Meur about the importance of online sharing is featured on IdeasProject.com, a unique website developed by Nokia. IdeasProject is an online space that provides a new way to interact with thought leaders and their big ideas about the future of connected communications.

"Sharing is much more important than protecting all of your ideas," said Le Meur. "It changes everything in the way we communicate, the way we get to know people across countries. Sharing allows you to stay in touch with your community. And the number one asset everyone has and many people still don't know about is the community."

"Our goal with the IdeasProject is to generate insight into where technology and communications are taking us," said Valerie Buckingham, director of technology marketing, Nokia. "Loic Le Meur is one of today's leading Web visionaries and his perception about the role the Internet can play in human society serves the premise of the IdeasProject, which is to generate big ideas on the impact of the greater disruptive technologies of our time."
