Our goal in a nutshell
All your options, neatly listed side by side.

Are you good at finding problems with things? Do other people not appreciate your ability to find flaws? Well then come on down to Needpedia.org where we use pattern language to break everything down into "Areas", "Problems", "Ideas", and some voting stuff that's still under development. What's important is that we start solving problems in more logical and intelligent ways, and one of the first steps in actually accomplishing that is to acknowledge what the biggest problems actually are.

So if you're good at finding them, or you just like to expose corporate and government wrongdoing, we'd love to hear from you.

Mission Statement

To build the wiki for all solutions, to any problem, with any thing.


Needpedia's goal is to build the wiki for all possible solutions to any problem, with anything. ​But more than that, our goal is connect people over the best ideas on Earth. So we also built a social media site, both so that people can use the social media site to collaborate on ideas they like in the wiki section, and so that people can use the wiki section to improve and even govern/democractize the social media section.
