Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Mar. 30, 2019)

As explained in the Index page , the (2nd round) Preliminary Internet Searches have been carried out.  The process of the Search and handling of the output results are explained generally in the Index page

The present page shows the results of the survey for the TRIZ-related sites written in English and located in USA.
For building the WTSP Catalogs, USA is very important of course because of its active, advanced, and powerful TRIZ activities.  Nevertheless, their various activities and various Web sites related to TRIZ are not well visible as a whole.  And hence the present survey and WTSP Catalog of  USA are much expected.  The process of the search and handling the output data has been carried out along the general instruction .

91 sites were output by the search with the Yahoo.Japan search engine with the keyword of TRIZ.  The sites are visited one by one quicky to get their basic information, and are evaluated tentatively in the 5 levels:

◎ :  Most important in the World WTSP Catalog   --- 6 sites
○ :  Important in the World WTSP Catalog  ------------ 11 sites
□ :  Worthy  in the World WTSP Catalog  --------------- 27 sites
△ :  Worthy  in Country WTSP Catalogs  ---------------- 24 sites
- :  Irrelevant/neglected in the WTSP Catalogs ------- 22 sites

The top 68 sites are listed here in HTML , in a rearranged order of their evaluation levels and site types. 
Each site is shown with evaluation level, site name, URL of the site domain, and the number of hit pages in the search site.

For the ease of further work, the original search results is attached here in .docx file , where the original output of the 68 sites are shown together with the heading information shown in this HTML page.

Further work is necessary.  Visit the sites again one by one, describe the introductions of the sites, evaluate the sites, include many more important sites, etc. 
The present list, in its enhanced version, will be the core of the USA WTSP Catalog and also give much information to the World WTSP Catalog.

 

Note (Toru Nakagawa, Apr. 6, 2019):  The Data Part is shown in a tabular form. By the ordinary 'Copy & Paste' operation of the whole table into an Excel file, you can get the Table of sites, in a form handy to edit and sort as you like. The data of sites in different pages (2A)  to (2F) may be merged easily (with some ovbious care).

Preliminary Search for TRIZ sites written in English and located in USA

Conditions of survey: 

(a) Survey Keyword:  TRIZ
(b) Language of the sites:  English
(c) Location of the sites:  USA
(d) Searcher's location: USA
(e) Search engine:  Yahoo.japan
(f) Option:  Only one representative page is shown for a site, with URL for the TRIZ search inside the site
(g) Browser:   Firefox 

Direct outputs of the survey:

91 sites are listed, with 2-3 lines per site.  The outputs are copied into a Word file.
Underlined words have hyperlinks, which are active (at least in my environment)
Note:  URL of option (f) is the hyperlink attached to : このサイト内で検索
          Or else with your search engine (like Google) you may  survey again with the keywords:  TRIZ  site:[URL of the site domain]       
          (for example:  TRIZ  site:https://www.trizjournal.com/

Further working process (already done): 

Visit the representative page, and then the top page of the site, and several more pages of the site quickly. 
Then click the URL of option (f) to see the result of Site search, and take a glance at the list of pages, and record the number of pages (which is shown at the top of the output of the site search).

Name of the site, URL of the site, and number of TRIZ pages in the site are recorded.
--- This record of each site title is put at the top of the survey result, with the style of Heading 2.

Then the sites are roughly/tentatively evaluated, with the evaluation symbols:  ◎ ○△ -
    ◎ :  Most important in the World WTSP Catalog
    ○ :  Important in the World WTSP Catalog
    □ :  Worthy  in the World WTSP Catalog  
    △ :  Worthy  in Country WTSP Catalogs 
    - :  Irrelevant/neglected in the WTSP Catalogs

The sites are rearranged with the evaluation, and are shown in some (tentative) categorization. 
Description of the ‘representative’ page is deleted, because of no significant information any more..

Further tasks to be done:

Visit individual sites again and describe its introduction in 5-10 lines each.
Note that the same site may have pages written in English or in any other languages. 

Interim Search Results for the World WTSP Catalog:

Do further surveys (a) with keywords in wider scope for the sites written in English, (b) for the TRIZ-related sites written in any other languages, and merge the results, (c) for the TRIZ-related sites located in any other countries, and merge the results.
We should make USA WTSP Catalog for readers located in USA and World WTSP Catalog for people in the world.
