Why sharing your ideas can change the world: The power of email - Wamda | Nerwork Economy and beyond... | Scoop.it

To summarize the lessons I learned from each of these experiences: if you have an idea, don’t just sit on it. Do something about it!

This is a good article in demonstrating how people need to act on ideas when they think of them. The author talks about missed opportunities but also has some good outcomes of capitalizing on those good ideas. The one that stands out is writing to the President of another country in regards to a diplomatic relationship because there was no embassy. To his suprise, the President finally received the letter and the President met with government officials from the other country to arrange talks. A powerful creative idea can change a lot if you grab people's attention by engaging them.

The article you chose is provides good ideas of what to do when you come up with a great idea. I believe ideas are very powerful and they can make or break a person. In saying this ideas are what have shaped the world around us. The article you have chosen suggests that whenever you get a great idea you should share it, in this certain situation, through email. The article also gives examples of certain peoples experiences when sharing their ideas through email and the idea of sharing these experiences will motivate others to do the same. I also like the last statement you made about how a powerful idea can change a lot if you engage people's attention. I believe engaging people with your ideas is what will make someone successful.

Very interesting article here with a great example off how acting on a great idea and a bit off faith led into a significant step that could possibly influence many peoples lives and in turn also have the potential to also improve/strengthen relationships between both these parties. We hear on numerous occasions during life weather it be professional or personal always share your good ideas as you never know the amount of impact it could have not only on other lives but also on yours. Great article to encourage people to take that extra step!!

On the heels of my just posted scoop of "The Science of Serendipity in the Workplace" I thought that it would be nice to pull this article from a few months ago on a similar topic, out for discussion.
Four great tips for improving collaboration & creativity in the workplace:
  1. Writable walls
  2. Communal spaces
  3. Multi-function furniture
  4. The "Five C's" (comfortable spaces; communal spots; connectivity; cup of coffee; connections)
And all of this is important for the same reasons that I discussed in the other scoop -- increasing socialization, which leads to spontaneous collaboration opportunities and the sharing of knowledge, and that increased collaboration and knowledge sharing then feeds the innovation engine!

Who Owns the “Sharing Economy”? – Next City

Over on Salon, Andrew Leonard reminds us that there are a growing heap of for-profit ventures that stand to do well for themselves should the "sharing economy" take hold, especially should they be able to rewrite the regulatory landscape to ease the path of their particular business models. It’s in that light that he sees the launch of the new Peers that I covered yesterday.
