IdeaConnection – trading innovation

Created as an answer to the perennial problem of getting the right people with the right expertise together to collaborate on a project, IdeaConnection is a website that allows you to post a problem you need solving and then pick from a screened roster of experts to assign the job (and the funds) to. It will also be “a place where people buy and sell ideas, inventions, and intellectual property.” It’s a great idea, but the success of most social networking platforms is due (at least in part) to them being free to use … perhaps I should float a project to start an ad-supported version.
