What do you want to talk about in 2012?

View Photo Gallery: From falling in love to fearing China and India, here are the stories on innovation you couldn’t get enough of in 2011.

There are few things more enjoyable than a good read, whether you love technology, policy, or detailed profiles of people you’ve never meet and places you’ve never seen — and even if you just love reading about love itself (Trust me, you did.). This year Post columnist Vivek Wadhwa, Ideas@Innovations blogger Dominic Basulto, a host of contributors and I worked to bring you thought-provoking reads on innovation.

Fears of a rising China and India, busting the engineer shortage myth, the emergence of iPad alternatives and low-cost tablet technology grabbed your attention in 2011.

Now, with 2012 around the corner (and thanks to the democratizing force of the Internet), I want to ask you: What do you want to read about, and who do you want to hear from in 2012?

There will always be news to cover, but, when it comes to the topics you want to talk about, the ideas you want fleshed out and the voices you want to hear, we’re open to suggestions.

So, I’m going to follow #InnovationReads on Twitter, and if Twitter isn’t your social media platform of choice, I’ll also be keeping an eye on Facebook, Tumblr and Google+.

If I don’t hear from you, have a healthy, happy new year full of imagination and, of course, innovation.
