The exchange of information, which is a victim of corporate firewalls, is one of the best ways to foster progress. Many people keep things private against their will. They are usually obligated to another person to do so. And that other person often demands privacy because she would suffer social ridicule if the information got out, or -- possibly more often -- that other person's business would suffer because someone else would "steal ideas."
But if all ideas were shared, there could be no IP theft. And with such a strong incentive for honesty, then little could cause social scorn.
