Collaboration Tree

A community discussion platform built for maximum insight with minimum oversight

The Collaboration Tree (cTree) is a new web platform being developed by our organization which will facilitate focused collaborative innovation.  In other words, it will allow a large number of people to provide useful input for a focused discussion, while making it easy to extract the most useful input and take action on it.  For our purposes we’ll be using the framework to discuss big ideas for improving civilization, but we’ll also make it freely available for use on other smaller projects.  The source code will be freely available in the hopes that developers will expand and contribute back to the project and continually improve it.

The reason we call it a tree is because by default it will be organized using a branching structure, starting with the core goals and eventually expanding out to individual branches, discussing the implementation details.  We believe this structure will be useful for everything from coming up with ideas for solving a problem to the exact specification of how to implement the idea.  The goal is to end up with the optimal blueprint which accomplishes the core goals.
