TGIF for the Seven Deadly Sins (of invention, that is)

1. The invention is more complex than the problem merits.
2. The invention is not kept secret until the date of filing.

3. The invention isn't new.

4. The inventor hasn't fully considered the problem.

5. No-one wants it.

6. An invention is safer if it's kept secret.

7. The inventor has an unrealistic idea of the value of his invention.

Thank Goodness It's Friday,
