For what it's worth, I ran across something similar in the Freedom-to-Tinker blog:
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)--an
intergovernmental think tank--recently faced this challenge. They were
planning a global summit for education leaders that is taking place in
Paris today (November 4th), and they wanted to bring fresh thinking
from the public to this group. To achieve this goal, the OECD created
an "idea marketplace" at www.allourideas.org,
The concept is quite similar.
