Dan,

Thanks for your comments.

Even if the "Top Kill" works, and BP manages to corral the first SOS (i.e. Stop the Oil Spill) there is still a second SOS which is (i.e. Save our Shores) that likely could benefit much from applying the opensource way.

Colin,

ABC reports that BP has also set up a Tip Line and has also received over 20,000 ideas via e-mail.

I think the issue here is not about ideation but about leveraging the opensource way to aggregate these ideas into a coherent set of plausible solutions for consideration by BP/Government.

Here is the ABC report: http://bit.ly/968tMp
