Innovation should be more about people anyway

Greetings! In principle, networked innovation web portals are a great concept. They are provide corporations that use them a highly efficientvehicle for facilitating the processing of inbound technology and innovation submissions. That said, they are sorely lacking in a number of key aspects that significantly limit their utility and value. And the sad thing is, the companies that use them, likely don't even realize it.
