From the title, Ideas Not Action, some might get the impression that we are discouraging Action, and well, this could not be further from the truth. We are providing Ideas with the hopes that the Action will soon follow - that individuals will take these Ideas, apply Action to them, and Innovation will result.

Ideas + Action = Innovation

We are simply focusing our efforts on the first half, on the Ideas.

Now, the Ideas put forth will not all be original, will not all be groundbreaking, will not always be feasible, but then again, Ideas do not have to be. Our goal is to promote discussion, to procure thoughts and insights from a wide range of people, and to present this information as such.

One way to think about these posts is as individual case studies - Why does an Idea seem like it would work? Why does an Idea seem like it would fail? What would be the best way to apply Action? What would people's reactions be if Action were taken? And who, if anyone, would benefit?

We encourage you to respond to the Ideas, to reply with your thoughts, your feelings, and your reactions, and to help us develop these Ideas further. Our growth is dependent on your participation, so please, poke around and let us know what you think - about both the Ideas, and the site in general.

Please direct any Ideas, feedback, questions, or concerns, to:
