With the American political season in high gear, what, if any contribution do you think open innovation can make to the policies of the next administration?
John McCain has proposed a $300 million prize for the development of a better car battery as part of his energy policy. Barack Obama spoke with ScienceDebate2008 about his technology and science innovation plan in an interview just published on the Wired Blog today.
Do you think open innovation or prize-based innovation would work on a government level? If you could suggest an issue or problem that could be solved with open innovation to either candidate, what would it be?
