Selling my ideas!!

By caffeine ·
Hello. I'm an anonymous programmer, and I have developed a technique that will make WORD better. In fact, I don't know what I'd do without it now. All I can say is you'd never have an excuse for losing progress on a typed paper again.

I wanna sell this idea to the highest bidder, but I don't know who to go to, or how. If anybody knows people who deal with people like me, or you are onje yourself, please, I beg you, e-mail me at caffeine@techie.com !

It really would depend on what kind of add on it is, to figure out which company you would go to... I know you're probably scared of Bill, but lots of people have went to him with lots of coding ideas, and he either hired them or bought them.

What kind of stuff did you change?
just an idea, not the full list..
