Collecting Ideas Mass-Collaboration Style

Outlook’s broken—Let’s fix it_1245842030040 Did you see the way people are trying to improve MS Outlook? The website 'Outlook's broken - let's fix it' is a protest site against the proposals for a future version of Outlook. But it's also a way to share and collect ideas about what Outlook should look like in the future.

This is a great example of collecting ideas for future product development (using mass collaboration for innovation)! I also like the way they visualize all the contributions. It shows the power of Twitter. It also shows contributors they're not alone: lots of people agree with you and we can shape the future together or at least try to influence it. Shouldn't every product have such a site, with a tweet fetcher?

Oh, and my contribution can be found here.
