It blows my mind when I hear friends talk about how they were bored one evening and with Tindr spent it out on a date. Instant entertainment and excellent match making... what if that could happen for mentoring?

Getting old isn't as sexy as it could be.  At the Palo Alto OpenIDEO Meetup we discussed a TED like talk series that has elders sharing wisdom or other stories that focus on inspiring and connecting them with a younger generation.

Thanks for your brilliant idea, Nathan! Would it give incentive for more collaboration?

The incidence of the common cold in the office might be reduced if a work group area had a small dispensing station (table top and ideally a small refrigerator) that made several folk remedies available to workers.

IDEO San Francisco recently hosted a brainstorm for our Connecting Communities Challenge.  One idea that emerged was the idea of a National  Clothing Line made from waste like PET plastics.

Nathan commented on San Francisco's Zero Waste program

I live in San Francisco and love this program. It really excites me to know that there's an easy way to compost that doesn't require me buying worms or using my back yard. It is one of my favorite parts of living in SF to be proud of the fact that in any home people can compost easily.
