Been there, doing that... Crowd sourced research on his brain cancer described in a TED lecture: http://www.crowdsourcing.org/article/ted-fellow-uses-crowdsource-approach-to-treat-his-brain-cancer/18985 Best wishes for a good outcome.

I like the idea presented in this article. I am a student researcher and as a early career researcher I think, I and my peers will enjoy having access to the problems, data and other research materials. These ideas may even start as projects in graduate courses, which sometime tend to grow into thesis research and pickup some momentum. I agree when you say "most ideas are false starts towards something useful". But I would argue that such a start may easily lead to further development by professors, etc.

My wife just cured her stage 4 cancer in two weeks with alternative medicine based on cyanides from apricot seeds. The cure (since it cures it is not a treatment) is obviously not available in the US or Europe. You can put all the monkeys you want, but they will end up in jail if the industry does not want you to cure cancer.

There is a new crowd sourcing website called cureLAuncher that is designed to promote cancer research and allow the public to fund individual projects. www.curelauncher.com offers medical researchers a forum for funding. It also offers people with cancer access to a huge database of clinical trials seeking patients. It's an amazing idea and I hope it catches on.

"One explanation of infinity is that if an infinite number of monkeys sit at infinite typewriters, one will write all of Shakespeare’s work on the first go." Of course another monkey will reproduce the complete works of Asimov and a third will reproduce every Pratchett. But what really shows how big infinite is is the fact that an infinite number of monkeys will produce original and even better works, making those 3 authors look like some pretty primitive primates indeed...

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
