Lots in store for 2011 on OpenIDEO! Starting off we have a brand new User Support Forum where you can suggest and vote on features, check for known issues, stay updated with announcements and help each other out on using the platform. You can also post stories related to OpenIDEO such as tweet-ups and ways you're taking ideas from our challenges forward offline. Remember it's a User Support forum – so let's keep it constructive : ) There's a link to the forums in the footer of our website. You'll get logged in automatically if you're already signed in on OpenIDEO. We've also got a new way to send in questions, ideas and feedback directly to the OpenIDEO team – via the prominent Feedback button on the right of most pages of our site.
The Sanitation Challenge has just moved into Evaluation Phase. Our Ghanasan IDEO Field Team had a tough time making the shortlist – come join us to narrow the selection further. The Innovation Challenge has come to an exciting close and we'll be posting winning concepts next week. We're furiously working on a report for the i20 Summit, to be hosted at the White House, in which we'll be combining various concepts to form the ten agenda topics. We'll be sharing this with you soon!
