Augment Your Brainstorming. Go From Thinking to Doing.

April 19, 2011

Augmented Brainstorming

“Become more conscious of the creative power within your reach

Alex Osborn 
Creator of Modern Brainstorming Techniques

Brainstorming was popularized in 1939 by Alex Osborn. He was a partner in an ad agency looking to expand the boundaries of projects and create a better context for idea generation. Osborn developed several rules for a good brainstorming session: encourage large quantities of ideas, include the outlandish unusual ideas, minimize judgment, and build on each idea.

In 1939 brainstorming methodology was solid but technology was still disconnected. Alex Osborn could have his secretary type up the groups’ ideas (as most real managers in 1939 didn’t type) and hand them out on a piece of paper to everyone.

How to Create Engaging Brains for Quick Online Publishing

November 17, 2010

put_your_mind_online

Topic focused Brains are ideal for sharing and publishing. They are a great way to enter into the publishing arena on WebBrain.com and are a ton of fun to create.  Here’s how to create a compelling Brain in 6 simple steps.


1. Select the Right Topic: Breadth or Depth?

If you want to attract attention on your blog or webbrain.com choosing a topic that’s engaging is a must. If you are pressed for time and want to publish, keep your topic focused. For instance, instead of mind mapping out the entire history of the United States you could choose a more specific topic  like “the Effect of the Industrial Revolution” or American Entrepreneurs.  Narrowing down your topic will help you avoid any gaping holes in your content and ensure that your Brain covers all key ideas on your subject.
