The definitive collection of idea generation methods

A wonderful site for brain-storming methods.

The definitive collection of idea generation methods:

About my Idea Generation Methods website
By Martin Leith Skip to Index

This website lists and explains every idea generation method I've encountered during the past 15 years. It is the result of extensive research; my many sources include books, management journals, websites, academics, consultants and colleagues.

The methods have been drawn not just from the worlds of creative problem solving and innovation, but also from other worlds such as organisational change, strategic planning, psychotherapy, the new sciences and the creative arts.

The methods are listed below. Each is linked to a description, and in some cases you will find full instructions for using the method to generate ideas. - Blogger Faces Lawsuit Over Comments Posted by Readers

Blogger Faces Lawsuit Over
Comments Posted by Readers

August 31, 2005

In a legal case being watched closely by bloggers, an Internet company has sued the owner of a Web log for comments posted to his site by readers. sued Aaron Wall, who maintains a blog on search engine optimization � tactics companies use to get themselves to appear higher in searches at Google, Yahoo and elsewhere � alleging defamation and publication of trade secrets. The suit, filed in a Nevada state court earlier this month, also listed as defendants several unnamed users of the blog.

At issue are statements posted in the comments section of Mr. Wall's blog, Many blogs allow readers to post comments, often anonymously, and Mr. Wall's blog included several reader submissions that blasted tools sold by said in the suit that confidential information about the company has been published on the blog, and it accused Mr. Wall of publishing 'false and defamatory information,' but it didn't identify any of the material in question.

Legal analysts said the case falls into somewhat murky legal territory, but that Mr. Wall may have some protection from liability under federal law. Courts generally have held that the operators of computer message boards and mailing lists cannot be held liable for statements posted by other people. Blogs might be viewed in a similar light, they said.
