Tempest is an online environment where social groups can exchange ideas very easily. With no registration required, one can create storms with a semi-private URL to share with group-mates. Anyone with a link can access the storm and submit their ideas to the group. Ideas are updated in real time; users who are viewing the page can track upvotes, comments, and trending ideas instantly. Google forms and Google docs don't allow the same organization for free flow idea submission. Surveys sent within a group aren't satisfactory as forms feel like your input is being sent into a "black hole," and organizers are left with a large spreadsheet with a lot of unstructured information. Tempest was created to create an organized space where users can aggregate their ideas in one centralized location, and provide real-time feedback and self-sort the best ideas.
