    -"So, what's that great idea?"
    -"Can't tell you."
    -"Well, have you searched app stores and googled in general to see if someone else's level of genius matches yours, so that they came up with the same idea a long time ago?"
    -"Uh, no". (searching app stores) "Damn..."

    If they handle the business plan, business development, sales, training, human resources, lawyer shit, logistics, account management, 1st level support etc... It is actually kind of fair.

    10% for being a developer is good. If you want more % you have to take more responsibilities.

    @Catdow Human resources etc in a startup? No way. HP, Apple, Oracle, Google etc started as a couple of guys in a garage. All the other stuff comes AFTER you have worked your ass of to have a product.

    @sebastienA I've wasted time sending them a rough estimate of what their idea might reasonably cost. Then i multiply by ten and ask how long they think it will take their revenue to match. Then i explain being paid hourly is a better bet for me, no matter what they say, they're speculating.

    Kids are the main culprits. They have a great idea for a video game or a robot that does Their chores or some crao, and when asked how they will do it they either say that they will learn, or that they know scratch and how to write hello world in JS, so they're already a programmer

    it depends in what 10% is... but for starters I'll want 30% for profits below 30k
