Al, thanks for the link, but that's an entire community, which we already have at Design News. I'm proposing a single forum within the DN community.

Often ideas are the very core of a new or significantly changed product - eminently patentable and valuable.  A means needs be created to enable to discuss such matters in private as already mentioned, but additionally a means needs to be created, stronger than NDAs, to protect the idea-person's rights.

That's a good idea. I think IDEO has a good platform: http://www.openideo.com/

I've had great experiences in Ning creative communities too: http://www.ning.com/

One way of getting around any unwieldiness would be to create a collaborative App around some of the more enlightening contributions to the DESIGN iDEAS which could be accessed by the Design fraternity.

Imagine an App for "Problems & Solutions in Aircraft Manufacturing" or the "A-Z of Battery Manufacturing" gleaned from the collaborative effort of numerous engineers and designers.

Imagine an App around the fascinating "Sherlock Ohms" series.etc.

Imagine a cross polliation to EDN and other sister publications........

Thanks for the feedback, ScotCan. I can see how that could be a problem after awhile.

Well Ann, engineering.com has a large site which over the years has become somewhat unwieldy. There are a large number of forums and it looks like it has become so large as to be problematic. This info is passed along since the Design News idea is a good idea but may suffer from similar woes as it grows.

They are the links from your article.

 An example of a very active forum would be:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/categories

 

A "wiki" type site may also be an interesting format to consider along with a forum type site. e.g. wikipedia.com, etc.
