GE uses fun Flash collaborative tool for promotion - nice idea for REALNEO

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Tue, 11/02/2004 - 16:52.

I noticed an interesting ad on the NY Times website, from GE, saying "Put Your Imagination to Work - Invite your friends to Collaborate" so I clicked it and found they are providing a cool interactive Flash drawing application that allows one to several Internet visitors to collaborate on a "drawing" - you can change background, line and fill colors and shapes and create a sketch of an idea or concept, and save it and send it to friends.

It's a nice idea that I'd like to add to REALNEO as another collaboration tool - need to find open source - needs integration or launch with instant messaging and/or VoIP for better teambuilding functionality.

I find most interesting the clever ways companies are trying to lure folks to websites or inspire an association with innovation and leading edge internet effectiveness, and this works well for GE for that.
