Talking Point Presents a New Tool for Collaboration

The UK-based site Talking Point offers a new way for collecting and organizing group thought for research and planning.

Its Flash-based interface collects opinions on a certain question (the current question posted is "What in your life would you like to see technology improve?"), and displays the answers in a graphical format. The words are placed in a circular cluster, with the most popular responses displayed most prominently and toward the middle.

Aside from being a potential tool for collecting customer feedback, Talking Point can also aid enterprises in strategic planning, by collecting input from large groups and displaying it in an intuitive format.
