In the light of this version 2.0 of the MIX, I think we have a great opportunity to ponder what we have learned (or unlearned) and from that, co-write, as a full fletched community, what we want to achieve in the future as well as the trace we want to...

Most authors are not professional writers. Some ideas are great but not easily digestible. Did you know AirBnB's success is partly because professional photographers come take pictures of your house after you post your AirBnB ad? This makes for a great browsing experience for new visitors who are looking for...

Sometimes I read a MIX story, and want to return to it later. If you don't use something like 'Read it Later' then it's hard to find an article. Simple 'favourite' option would work wonders.

Content Visualizations I enjoy seeing pople using images and expressions along with any explanation of an idea or principle. Bjarte Bogsnes uses the image of a traffic circle contrasted against the image of a traffic stop and go light, to illustrate the notion of responsible self-control in a social situation....

I used to have the impression that Pinterest was just another-silly-social-network-around the web. Then, my girlfriend showed me how wrong I was. She uses Pinterest as her canvas for inspiration. Through the use of its “boards” she has been collecting and organizing ideas for her own entrepreneurial projects and dreams....

I have zero knowledge about how to make a mobile device application. I'm sure I could learn. It's not terribly hard. Shoot, I wish I had invented one of those super sensational apps that turned some kid in his Mom's basement into a multimillionaire, but alas, I've probably spent way...

As others like Deborah Mills-Scofield has pointed out, we have a great deal of textual content here. But I think we need not just a short summary, but to look at the information in different ways: - management topic relationships - people relationships - company particulars (e.g. size, industry) -...

In a prior Hackathon, a group of us worked collaboratively to generate one of the more popular entries: Tweetstorming.  Not only did we collaborate to build the hack, we tried to use the idea itself - using the twitter platform to engage in the brainstorming and writing - to...

I admit it. I use foursquare. I'm not entirely sure why, but I do. I also use Map My Ride for my daily bicycle commute in order to log the miles as training and such. Both applications are mainly used on my mobile handset. I rarely open them up on...

Make it easier to link to, integrate, embed, and consolidate generally all manner of relevant resources from across the web using MIX as the "connector." How could we tap the knowledge store and subject matter experts on Quora? What about LinkedIn? Could MIX not only pull knowledge from that platform...
