It's not over until it is over. :)

Twitter on! We'll continue to experiement with brainstorming on Twitter after the encouragement of the Denver IDEA Cafe this afternoon.

Weekend brainstorming question: Favorite websites? See #IWWCWwebsites

Hope you have a great weekend!
Twitter brainstorming experiment is over. I think.

I'm going to take down the "How to brainstorm on Twitter" note on next week. If ANY enthusiasm surfaces for the idea, I'll be glad to give it a bit more time.

Brainstorming is a powerful technique face-to-face. If you've had ANY luck brainstorming online, I'd like to hear about it. Post a comment here or email me at

For now, we'll go back to using the Twitter @IDEACafe site just to promote our Small Business Chamber of Commerce IDEA Cafe meetings.

Good speaker this afternoon at the Denver IDEA Cafe, 20+ have told me they are coming, or might be, on Facebook, but virtually NO rsvps on meetup site to reserve a seat at the brainstorming table. Not sure what that means.

Great meeting of the Franklin Circle Alpha Group yesterday at noon. New meeting location next week. We still need a couple of more people. If you might like to join, or if you want to start your own mastermind or peer advisory group, join us this afternoon for "How to start your own Franklin Circle, and why you should." No RSVP required, we'll be at Panera, 13th & Grant here in Denver right after the IDEA Cafe.

Thanks to the Denver Daily News, the Denver Post, the Villager, Life on Capitol Hill, Westword, Denver Business Journal, and all those on Facebook who have helped people who've lost a job or had a bright idea know about what we are doing!

How may I be of service to you?

Twitter posts again this morning. This should start working, I'm going to keep it up for at least a few more days. Post your favorite business book in response to today's IWWCW "In What Ways Can We" questions: IWWCWbooks. See

I'm sending out email later today. We have GREAT speaker at Denver IDEA Cafe this week, did you see the mention of our meeting in the Denver Post Tech Calendar yesterday in the print edition? RSVP now to make sure you have a seat at the brainstorming table (1st 12 to RSVP, others sit in the Peanut Gallery.)

Snowed in, good day to clear my desk and get caught up. Good day for you and I to talk on the phone, call me at (303)861-1447. How may I be of service to you?

Jury duty today. I'm testing brainstorming on Twitter each day, take a look and tell me what you think of what we are doing, OK? See "How to brainstorm on Twitter" Note on or go directly to the brainstorming site at

Your feedback on this would be very helpful. Of course brainstorming is just one tool in the creative process, but it can be a powerful boost to us when we are stuck.
