The End of an Era for Google Labs—Innovation Now Via Acquisition and Pontification
by Stephen E. Arnold
The media, Wall Street, and assorted bloggers were adrenalized by Larry Page's announcement that Google Labs was going dark. That's right. Google Labs. The quasar of innovation at the Google: Shut down, lights off, out of business, and repurposed ... What's gone? Obviously the Google Labs site where I could "play around with prototypes of some of Google's wild and crazy ideas and offer feedback directly to the engineers who developed them."

by Paula J. Hane
Idea management systems are one way to approach innovation and product development. They provide a structured and disciplined approach for managing idea generation, capture, collaboration, assessment, implementation, and outcome monitoring. In 2010, Gartner's Emerging Tech Hype Cycle put the technology as being 2-5 years from mainstream adoption. I hadn't really paid much attention to this category until the recent announcement by Inmagic of IdeaNet, its "next-generation innovation application," powered by Inmagic Presto.
