Open approaches to idea collection - Dell's Ideastrom and IBM's World Jam

 Interesting activities emerging related to idea collection and open innovation:Dell launched a public idea aggregator website in February 2007. Their site seems to work well and they are receiving many ideas from the customers. You can also see how ideas are preceeding, through screening to development. More information from here and Dell's approach is open for 24-7, for all ideas andfor anyone. The IBM World Jam is also used for idea collection. IBM's Jams are typically collaborative events, that run over a certain period of time, for selected audiences and searching ideas in specific areas.   - Minna
