Visualizing Content, Ideas and Linkages/Relationships as a Graphs
As others like Deborah Mills-Scofield has pointed out, we have a great deal of textual content here. But I think we need not just a short summary, but to look at the information in different ways: - management topic relationships - people relationships - company particulars (e.g. size, industry) - social capital (the likes, comments, shares, etc of the idea) - and ways to suggest new linkages I'd suggest a tool that allowed people to diagram these linkages, perhaps boxes representing ideas and colored lines representing different types of linkages. It is simply needs to be a web/network graph A short visual diagram can enormously help to sort, relate, and connect. E.g., Michele's idea of a diagnostic can come out of creating a flow diagram from a particular idea hack. Another way would be to create a larger graph that connects different idea hacks together. I can see us hacking our own variations of such patterns as a meta-hack (not just within one), and each offering a new possible pattern reusing or recombining ideas in the Mix. This is what I thought of in reading Jan Robert Johnsen's suggestion for a toolbox.
