Abstract

A system and method of creating a web portal ideas can be recorded is presented. Each idea page is collaboratively edited, evaluated and managed using a system similar to Wikipedia. Each idea will have a list of applications to go with it. The system could also be provided with tools to track if the idea is known anywhere, either on demand or as a configurable notification. The website would not guarantee originality of entries, but will have mechanisms to check for prior art. If the creator of an idea wants to implement that idea they would be responsible for ensuring that it is not patented before and to cover risks of infringing any existing claims. If the creator finds no prior art for his idea, he could publish it on the website, thereby making it available to others and use it. The system and method disclosed will prevent trolling.
