Organizing Ideas for a company brainstorm: Wiki, blog, what?

I work in a subdivision of a large music entity. There are many high-level ideas and challenges that float around every week. I'm trying to research a system that would allow for our staff of several hundred people to be able to both post ideas and solicit feedback on improving our products, our relationships, etc to a central website as well as being able to respond to others ideas. (for example: "how do we better provide value to cd purchasers" or "what can we do to optimize communication between department") Challenges: - Many of the people involved are not computer-savvy (not sure they'd be able to figure out how to use a wiki) - The individual items will need to be easily categorizable and accessible (this is why i hesitate to use something like Wordpress or Blogger, because after something's no longer on the home page, its out of peoples heads) - There will need to be an intuitive 'global' view I guess I'm kind of asking for something like AskMeFi, actually. But with an additional summary layer. Ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Making Complex Connection Webs

If I have the data "A is friends with B, B is dating C, C is cousin of A, D is old schoolmate of B" etc, how can I easily make a chart of everyone's connections to each other? This should preferably be software, as trying to map it out manually is way too timeconsuming and difficult.

Examples of 'The Infinite' in Myth and Their Effect on Conditions of Truth

I am searching for examples of The Infinite, or the immeasurably large, in our mythologies and archetypes. I am also interested in the categories of Truth which came out of the emergence of Western, ontological thought. Does the trust in a rationally conceivable reality deny us the infinity of the mythological realm? By rooting ourselves in the present, and denying atemporal mythologies, do we also deny the infinite origins from where we came? [more inside]

Need vacation ideas.

I have one week of vacation left for the rest of the year that I need to burn. I need some ideas on what to do. To give you an example of what I like to do, this year I competed in a road rally, drove to the Formula 1 US Grand Prix, and drove to Ohio to see Weird Al and visit a friend of mine. I am in south Louisiana and I'd like to go drive some where. Obviously I'm a car geek and a little of a scifi nerd. I have considered driving to the cape to see a shuttle launch, but thats a real gamble. Give me some ideas AskMe.
