Next innovation will be adding carbon footprints to CSR to keep up with current global warming issues. (Don't know if Thomas has mentioned this to you yet Tia as you missed our Skype conference over the weekend). It seems IP just keeps evolving to include factors which are seen as important to modern day businesses.
Re: peer developed learning tools - the main reason I like IP is that the team (some of it) is accessible to the players, and take note of suggestions and feedback in the forums etc.. Many innovations to IP over time have been due to players' suggestions. Also most of the team began as players who just got more and more involved. Our current mods are just players who volunteer to help others. This community spirit is MY reason for playing IP.
