How it could be different


Last modified: January 11, 2013, 9:08 PM


How it could be different is a website where one can easily see, vote on, comment on, share, and suggest current, innovative ideas in different categories. The site can be thought of as a "Wikipedia for ideas" or a "democratic TED." By collecting ideas in one place and explaining them in an abridged way, How it could be different is able to:

• make it easy to learn about and spread ideas to improve issues, programs, products, and policy • cause inspiration in thinking about how the world could be different • determine which ideas and innovations people most support • provide a forum for suggesting and discussing ideas • form groups and provide opportunities to potentially bring ideas to life
