SearchTeam: Collaborative Asynchronous Searching
by Greg R. Notess
Zakta launched a new collaborative search site, SearchTeam.com, on July 12. Proposing to "search the web together with people you trust," SearchTeam lets groups of searchers save results, add notes, modify results, "like" specific hits, and share results with others. Rather than requiring that the entire team (or group of collaborators) be online at the same time, SearchTeam is asynchronous, letting each team member save results, annotate them, and even upload files to share with others. As described in the SearchTeam FAQ, searchers can create a SearchSpace for gathering and organizing search results for each topic. "You can find and save only what you want while you are searching and throw away what you don't want or find irrelevant. You can automatically organize what you save, into folders of your choosing."

Inmagic’s New Idea Management System for Collaborative Innovation
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.
