About Idea Networks

Our first theme (of five – learn more here) is the place where we first scratch the “itch” of design, where initial ideas are hatched.   Idea networks. Open Innovation marketplaces. Crowdsourcing. Design competitions. They have many names and come in different “flavors.” What matters is they are wide and open enough to hold the diversity needed to really crack open an idea.

The #1 groups on Idea Networks get to explore what make these communities and networks useful — and where they are problematic. You will take a critical eye, ok? Here are a few questions to get you started.

What online architecture, tools and processes create successful innovation marketplaces? What differentiates these from other types of open innovation online groups and environments? I.e.

What examples might you share of other idea and innovation networks? Add the links in the comments below.
