If or I suppose when the paradigm shifts will we even know? In a world of scientific endeavour sharing discoveries is inherent in the process of shifting the paradigm. Newton and Einstein shared their finding with the world and in some ways that is encouraged (first to publish wins). The case of Bill James as far as I understand it is not dissimilar. He wrote about his findings and made them available both for profit but also for dissemination (given his limited sales at least at the start). Can we expect the same sharing when a paradigm would have significant value to that organization. Presumably no patent would need to be filed or credit outside the organization sought. I am not thinking "<span class="bookdef"><a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0393324818/baseballpro07-20/ref=nosim/" target="blank">Moneyball</a></span>" but what if one of the organizations actually employing people to think more broadly about baseball discovers the paradigm? Per gpurcell's comments, I agree. I was thinking perhaps it would be the re-contextualizing of data along the lines of "club house chemistry".
