The largest on-line brainstorming session ever
More than 150,000 people from 104 countries participated in InnovationJam, an on-line brainstorming session sponsored by IBM, creating more than 46,000 ideas, including the 3D Internet, Simplified Business Engines, and Smart Healthcare Payment Systems.
IBM will invest $100 million over the next two years to pursue ten new businesses that were spawned by these ideas.
"Collaborative innovation models require you to trust the creativity and intelligence of your employees, your clients, and other members of your innovation network," said IBM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Samuel J. Palmisano. "We opened up our labs, and said to the world -here are our crown jewels. Have at them".
