"No, that is my idea!", his ego snapped. 

Truth is, ownership of a good idea, (its source) has little to do with its ultimate success.  Great ideas propagate because they resonate with enough folks that they are implemented. And because they make sense rather than being sourced by a single or small group of egos.

"It is why robust attribution can be so useful. Rather than claiming a good idea, acknowledge that one stands 'on the shoulders of giants' and mention them by name. It is what the giants and compassionate humans do. I am pretty sure."
