ThinkTank a social insight/ideation platformPosted: April 20, 2010
In my article yesterday about technology driven idea generation I listed a bunch of platforms for doing different forms of “ideation” (idea generation). I just came across another one specifically for ideation through social networks this morning called ThinkTank (link) which has been developed by Expert Labs and Lifehacker founder Gina Trapani. Currently it works with twitter, but is progressing towards both Facebook and Google Buzz integration. Also great is that it’s open source, so you can install it on your own server and customise it (if you’re a PHP maven).
Apparently it’s progressing towards being used by the white house for idea gathering, and looks like a real platform to watch.
