Welcome to the May 2007 Issue of The TRIZ Journal!

By Katie Barry, Ellen Domb and Michael S. Slocum

Editors Katie Barry, Michael Slocum and Ellen Domb were together in April at the Altshuller Institute's TRIZCON2007. Ellen presented the history of the TRIZ Journal (and the celebration of its 10th anniversary) showing how TRIZ was used to solve the challenges of starting a new journal, attracting authors and readers and sponsors, and mastering the technology of online publication. We challenge our readers to follow our example: if you have used TRIZ to solve a real business problem, write an article! We plan to publish several of the papers presented at TRIZCON – look for them to appear in coming issues.

Rather than publishing a report following TRIZCON, this year we experimented with live commentary. If you missed the conference (or even if you were there) be sure to read Katie Barry's commentaries that cover as many sessions as she was able to attend. (Katie is planning to post live commentaries from this week's Front End of Innovation conference, so if you are interested in innovation in all of its many forms, be sure to keep checking the commentary section Wednesday, March 9th-Friday, March 11th.)

This month we have a mix of returning and new authors:

Until June, happy TRIZ reading!
