It’s called Ideapod and combines some of my favourite things: ideas, people from all over the world, and succinct writing.
The concept is pretty simple. You have 1000 characters to present your idea. (You can also use videos, graphics or images). People can share their thoughts in the comments section and link related ideas. The ultimate aim is to enable people to collaborate to implement some of them in real-life.
In a recent blog post, Richard Branson said Ideapod “can only increase the chances of society coming up with more game changing concepts.”
Ideapod results in a network of thought-provoking, easily digestible and thematically linked posts – some of which actually contain some pretty good ideas about how to make the world a better place.
For the moment, I’m going to be writing my “big idea” posts on Ideapod. (The 1000-character limit is so much more appealing right now than the idea of writing a whole blog post!) For those of you who don’t feel like joining up, I’ll be posting links to the pieces in the “Big Ideas” section.
Happy Friday! I’ll be back to conventional blogging soon! 🙂
