      Thank you for your reply Kalim.

      Yes its a good platform to validate an Idea and take it forward with the help of ‘Community Powered Innovation’

      And TZen proved it that it is possible and viable way of working together. In just 4 months this team added 27 new functionalities to the earlier version and has now reached its Version 1.1.

      This is a success of a team whose members come from different organizations, work in different locations, have different aspirations and yet share a common purpose.

      Now waiting to see other ideas to reach this stage…

    This is indeed a good achievement. There is another significant project unfolding on PlanetAikon. Some talented software engineers have teamed together to create an Electronic Medical Records System on behalf of an NGO. You can find the details at What I am really excited about is to see the willingness of professionals to put some time aside to give back something to a very a critical area in the country – Healthcare. More power to such people
