NDA – Non- Disclosure Agreement
1.      Its often in your interests to share the “what” (but not details of the how) as early in the process as possible.  In this case, an NDA is not relevant.
2.      Don’t rely on an NDA to protect the truly “secret” stuff.  It’s likely not going to give you the protection you think it is.
3.      Your odds of actually getting someone to sign the NDA are low anyway, so it’s likely not worth the effort.
