Ideas like these don't come from a vacuum. They
come from people like you. You're probably bursting with good ideas,
so let's hear them, or—even better—let's see them. And if there are
any attic programmers left out there—get coding! Don't forget that
most of the big companies around today are manned by people who
started where you are now. We need you, we need your originality,
and (if your product's worthwhile) we'll reward you handsomely.
