Mindmapping has proven to be extremely helpful throughout different phases of OpenIDEO Challenges. It has been instrumental in helping moving inspiration and concept phases further along. What if we make this as a permanent feature of each challenge?

I don't know about you guys, and maybe it is a 'personal management thing, though 'time for good' is a difficult to handle 'in between' for me. How can we 'grow sustainably' timewise at OPENideo? Can a concept grow beyond the initial competition?

Every person, community, and nation is faced with unique problems. OpenIDEO could use its ideology in a "Town Hall" context to serve as a forum for thinking of creative solutions to regional or national problems.

What makes innovation happen is the ability to transform dreams, into ideas.
But when you need to make this happen you need a really good feedback in realtime, so the use of videos and live meetings its fundamental to accomplish this.

I think this online database has been a quiet revolution. 
It helps us understand our history through numbers. 
It is very often with surprised that we realise how the rest of us live and i think that for some, social impact will start here.
