New Categories: IdeaStorm & Ideas in Action

Today, we’re launching two new categories on Direct2Dell: IdeaStorm and Ideas in Action. Over the past several months we’ve heard from customers and from several folks like Mack Collier that we should strengthen the ties between Direct2Dell and IdeaStorm. In the IdeaStorm category, you’ll hear from folks like the IdeaStorm Manager Caroline Dietz and the IdeaStorm Moderator Kara Krautter. They’ll use the overall IdeaStorm category to blog about feature improvements, policy updates and to provide perspective on issues that the community raises, and insight into Dell’s lessons in crowd-sourcing. Similar to how Kevin Rose and team use the blog.

Pages like the Moderator Update page and the Ideas in Action page were static before. The team hopes that moving this content to Direct2Dell will allow the IdeaStorm community to comment on and share their thoughts on how IdeaStorm continues to evolve.

To give you an idea of the kinds of things to expect, Kara’s first two posts provide more context about this move, and explain the IdeaStorm category list in more detail. If you are really interested in getting automatic updates on either category, you can subscribe to an RSS feed for the IdeaStorm category here and the Ideas in Action category here.

Subscribing will pull new content into your favorite RSS reader like Google Reader, Google Homepage, My Yahoo, Bloglines, or NewsGator. That way, you will automatically receive any updates that are added to either category.

We look forward to hearing more from the IdeaStorm community and continuing the discussion.
