Idea’s or ideas?

In a workshop I held not long ago, a participant wrote the following on the flip chart: “Idea’s about new projects”. All he really wanted to do was to form the plural of the word ‘idea’. He should have just added an ‘s’ without the apostrophe.

If you’d like to know when to use the apostrophe, take a look at this excellent article (link to: Purdue OWL).
