Twitter has been making a large buzz in the web world for almost 2 months now.
About one month ago I started using it much more agresively. I am now hooked!

I enjoyed reading about your innovation ideas for developing greater trageted tweets. I am finding more and more great content and marketing from those who are marketing others and not just themselves. Also the innovation and sharing of ideas increases the pool of knowledge.

I view Twitter as a TRIZ resource. Someone has alredy mastered the process, Twitter is how to find them and innovate the solution to fit your needs.

I had the great pleasure of meeting with Bob Johansen from the Institute for the Future. They have forecasts that include this very environment of active, geopositioned, relevant streams, or filters.

Thanks, Edward. I've met Bob, and I have always been impressed with IFTF. I'm not surprised to hear they have this mindset in some of their work. (Makes me wonder if they are using a systematic method!) The message for the team at Twitter is they need to embrace groups like IFTF and start piloting revenue models...before someone does it for them.


I see the benefit of using AD with Twitter, but did not understand how do you monetize the services.
Who needs the twitter smart sense? Who will pay for them?

About This Blog

  • For thousands of years, inventors have embedded five simple patterns into their inventions, usually without knowing it. These patterns are the "DNA" of products that can be extracted and applied to any product or service to create new-to-the-world innovations. Drew Boyd shares how to use this effective, repeatable, and trainable innovation process for organic growth.

Innovation Sighting

  • "Innovation Sighting" is a monthly feature that demonstrates the use of structured innovation methods. A great way to develop one's skill at innovation is to be able to recognize the use of templates in everyday products and services.

Marketing Innovation

  • "Marketing Innovation" is a monthly feature that demonstrates innovation templates for advertising, promotion, and integrated marketing communication. It is based on the pioneering work by Professor Jacob Goldenberg and his colleagues in "cracking the advertising code."

Academic Focus

  • "Academic Focus" is a monthly feature that highlights an institution or professor who is doing an outstanding job bringing the tools and skills of innovation to the practitioner community.


  • The LAB is a regular feature that demonstrates how to use innovation methods and tools. Blog readers are invited to pose a question or submit a product or service for The LAB . Drew will then show how to apply a systematic process to the product or service and create real, new-to-the-world concepts.
