The Idea Log, Idealog's spirit 'animal', is back. And this time, it's here to propose some coping mechanisms for entrepreneurs who are dealing with some common startup ailments. Because business isn't all beer and Skittles...

Year in Review, brought to you by Tech Futures Lab

Idealog's spirit animal, The Idea Log – an anthropomorphic log that offers our readers million dollar ideas and inspiring inspiration in every issue – shares his views on the year that was and the years that could be. 

The Idea Log

The Idea Log, Idealog's spirit 'animal', is back once again to propose a few innovative solutions to help get our country’s A into GDP. He's already provided numerous million – perhaps billion – dollar ideas in the areas of food, apps, culture and design thinking. And for the Technology Issue, he spat on the graves of our generalist forebears and their useless no. 8 wire and developed some cool names for new regional tech hubs that will help show off their specific areas of expertise. 

The Idea Log

The Idea Log, Idealog's spirit 'animal', fully embraced design thinking for Idealog's Design Issue and has a few suggestions on how to solve some of society's most intractable (and entirely inconsequential) problems.

So I’m here to propose a few new high-value ideas to help get our country’s A into GDP. This time, I'm helping you create an innovative culture.

Rest assured, I'm entering all of these brilliant ideas in the mobile, media and entertainment category and all my previous brilliant ideas in the food and beverage category).
