Hi Tom, I think you are exactly right. The key point will be allowing input from others to be constructive and not interfere with individual creativity and development. Luckily we have a head start here, as source control technologies like git have a very good solution to this problem. Platforms like github have a whole range of extra functionality that allow issues to be raised, comments added and update requests (pull requests) to be handled, this may be a good place for us to start.
The key for us is not trying to re-invent the wheel take what works well in one domain and apply it in another.
Hi Tom, Thanks for commenting we are really excited to engage with more like minded people. Indeed your idea does seem quite similar. The power of the crowd is strong indeed. I would love to learn a bit more about !dea Soup. Where are you based? Would you like to send me an email at email@example.com and we can try and set up a time to chat?
