  • Mar 18 2012: They could be but I was thinking more about someone who an idea generator or an organization would go to with specific people skills to educate the masses and work with that idea to bring into fruition and have it accepted as positive change, the norm if you will.

      Mar 19 2012: WOW nice. I know some people and organization are doing so. Personally I have been trying to act as like as you defined.

      Can you please kindly visit my Knowledge Hub(under construction, but you may like it): http://www.niazbiz.com/

      Thanks.
  • Mar 18 2012: Someone who has the ability to take an idea, educate the masses to the idea and the benefits of the idea in a way that creates positive change in the world. This person has the ability to gain trust and to connect with the people quickly and easily.

      Mar 18 2012: Very nice saying. I do strongly agree with you.

      But what do you think about it: Is a idea programmer is idea generator as well as idea implementer?
  • Mar 19 2012: No I am not but it sounds like a great idea, there are so many great ideas floating around that do not get seen or heard by the people that should see them, that it almost seems this could be a new avenue for employment and therefore a new area of education.

      Mar 19 2012: Yes! Right you are. I have originated this word. Please check my short bio from here: http://www.niazbiz.com/

      Once we were doctor, engineers, teachers and so on. But in this era of ideas and innovations we are now Idea Programmer...:)

      Thanks for your comment.
  • Mar 19 2012: I am sorry for interrupting in Idea Programmer definition course.. but I believe I have some pretty good idea for cryptological system.. something very simple in its core.. but its complexity grows and grows while being in use.. I have no sufficient math/computer knowledge to built up a model to test it.. Is there anybody here who could give me an advice how to bring that idea to live?

      Mar 19 2012: I believe you have to have team consist of several members having distinctive capabilities. As you do have great ideas (according to you) hence, you need some other members to implement your ideas and spread it. So firstly find out the skills that we will be needing to implement your ideas and then find some team mates having those skills.
      Take very good care.

    Mar 19 2012: Sounds like a factory line worker that puts programs into robots or cleverly puts ideas into other peoples mind, like the movie inception.

    Mar 18 2012: Idea programmers are familiar with system's thinking. they differ from implementers or generators in the fact that they are whole picture viewers of a phenomenon and that helps putting the idea components together to create a greater one that will eventually serve a specific purpose.
    • Mar 19 2012: Yes Sina I would agree because you would have to understand the situation before in order to change thought patterns and make the implementation work.

        Mar 19 2012: I predict that they will soon be idea management, idea programming, idea engineering courses in the universities. are you aware of any of these courses already being thought in universities ?

        Mar 19 2012: I liked it Lillian 'have to understand the situation before in order to change thought patterns and make the implementation work.'

        Thanks!

        Mar 19 2012: :) I checked your website.

        I like that It's reach in useful material and I can see your blog is new and in wordpress, I have also started a blog recently http://unisina.com
        Niaz I think you and I share pretty much the same interest. I am also considering a career in Idea management and Idea generation but I have not found a university course in Phd grade for that subject. I would be grateful if you share it with me once you find it.
        My interest in field of thinking and ideas are not only in business and I prefer solving world, environment, social, political problems and generate new ideas for the world.
        what I have in mind is a little bit different from what an armchair philosopher does. I am sure you get the point.
        we will keep in touch

          Mar 20 2012: Dear Sina, I have been facing same problem. You know I am now 23. I am going to publish 3 full length books and 6 manifestos. In addition to that I have been doing impactful works.

          But I want to get my Phd from Harvard Business School or Sloan School of Management. But I don't know what could be my subject...:(

          But yes! If I get anything effective for you. I will send it to you. Thanks.

        Mar 20 2012: It seems we are sharing the same ambitions Niaz ... and pretty much the same dreams that we will make them come true. as I said we shall keep in touch. It's not gonna be an easy way but it is possible and we will find the subject that suits us most.

          Mar 20 2012: Yes! You are right. You can contact me here [niaz@niazbiz.com]. I have also given the link of my Facebook profile: http://www.facebook.com/ideaprogrammer.

          So now I guess we can get connected strongly, work together, get prepared to pursue our dreams..:)

          Chill!
