What is IdeaMill?
IdeaMill is the place to be inspired by new ideas and a set of tools to help you share your own. The website enables people from different worlds to pool together ideas and to connect known solutions to more of the problems they can solve.
Created by Martin Wilson and Richard Bruce in 2019, IdeaMill’s mission is to bring people together through their ideas and provide insights to help us better understand the world and the people in it.
What can I do here?
Search your interests or browse hashtags to see the latest, best and worst ideas that relate to you, your city, your job, hobbies or opinions.
You can add your own (or other people’s) ideas just to see how popular they are. Then choose to share or promote them. You can even grow a following to crowdfund your project and make your ideas a reality.
Brands can have customers brainstorm new product ideas. Entrepreneurs can find popular business ideas. Soon, visionaries can date-stamp privately published ideas and invite specific collaborators. And with the IdeaMill app anybody can sketch pictures, record music or use a dictation machine to plant ideas.
Why should I do it?
Kurt Vonnegut: “Evolution didn’t end with us growing opposable thumbs… we can evolve at will, and the way that we do it is that we evolve ideas…”
Jason Silva: “Ideas are powerful because they allow us to see the world as it could be, rather than what it is.”
Richard Feynman / Paul Dirac: ”…some new ideas are here needed…”
