WikiBrains | technologies |

Wikibrains is website designed to help users brainstorm/blue-sky in a web format.


The difference? When users brainstorm/blue-sky on Wikibrains they're also performing a basic Internet search at the same time.


To create a brainstorm/blue-sky web on Wikibrains...
- enter a word or phrase.
- users will be prompted to add more words by completing the phrase, "Makes me think off..."
- add a new word or phrase which,in turn, will be added to the web.


As words are added, on the right side of the screen, users will see links to search results about each word.


Note: by creating a Wikibrains account users can alter their brainstorm/blue-sky webs by adding custom paths and links between elements.


Another perk is the option to browse other users' webs and modify them for your own use.
