Welcome to the Global Idea Exchange.
This is the world's premier storehouse of ideas of all stripes and shades. People everywhere have ideas. Many of them stash those ideas on this very Idea Exchange. Some of 'em are real doozies. Others are whoppers. Still others are gems, curios, winners, and mistakes.
Best of all, it's easy to get a seat on the Exchange. All you have to do is fill out the itty-bitty form below and we will rush your idea to the trading floor. And, just as fast, reveal to you one of the ideas already in our massive databank of notions.
Go ahead. Type in an idea, something which has occurred to you, something you've noticed, something that intrigues you. (Okay, here're some examples: "Paul Giamatti is the new Kevin Spacey."; "The penny should be taken out of circulation."; "In more civil times, we referred to the pigeon as the rock dove. That made it seem less rat-like.") Submit it, and we'll exchange it for another idea.
If you choose to provide additional information, the GIE can be even more provocative. If you provide an email address, future GIE traders who see your idea will be able to contact you to discuss ideas and the meaning of life and cracker jacks and the like. Or, if your idea was sparked by something posted on 90ways, you can enter the house and the week number of the post that sparked your submission. If there is another idea tagged with the same post, the Exchange will give it to you.
