Big Ideas, Bigger Participation

August 2nd, 2007 2 Comments

factory.gifWe debuted the IdeaFactory roughly a month ago, with Justin launching it for us. In that time, we’ve had:

And we’re big in Japan, they are our third highest region for visits behind the U.S. and the U.K.

Digging deeper, I found that we’ve had strong participation numbers, too.

Because the IdeaFactory is visible to all and you have to login to do something, we are seeing a pretty common new web distribution of visitors: a lot of readers, a smaller group of voters, and a smaller group of contributors. Our demographic spans the entire company, in all divisions, all job functions, all levels, including executives.

Overall, considering the viral distribution of the IdeaFactory internally and its short run of 30 days, we’re very pleased. The ideas and comments are good, and we’re happy to keep the collaboration rolling. If you’re a reader and an employee and you haven’t gone to IdeaFactory, you really should see what’s cooking.

Stayed tuned for more on what we’re doing. To tease you, our new project went into alpha when I started typing. Rich says we have 200 users, an hour after we had 3 (you know we three amigos as Justin calls us). More to come on this alpha project, I promise.
