Cool idea!

Innovation by contest is a very interesting concept to help cross time zones and prevent "geographic isolation" from becoming "idea isolation."

I'd be really interested in your feedback on www.timzon.com, a tool with similar purpose: to help global teams collaborate through recorded video conversations.

That communication, enhanced with other functionality such as white boarding, is designed to create a face-to-face like experience but on your own time.

I'll be thinking about how the contest concept might fit within the concept as well.

Thank you for the excellent post!


Steve, thanks for sharing your pep talk today! innovation be contest is a concept that sticks.
