Unfortunately Doug doesn't feel well and this is why we postponed the discussion with him probably until January. From all of our heart we wish him to get well soon.
Let's take this as an opportunity to do more of the things that are the most fun at the Future Salon, discussing the possible directions it takes and what we can do to positively influence it.
This is why we are doing a Future Salon Open Mic this Wednesday 30th of November.
Please come and bring interesting articles and your ideas about the Future to discuss. We will do a round of introductions as always. Question this time: "One thing that frightens you about the future and one thing that excites you about the world to come."
We will write all of them down and then discuss some aspects in more detail focusing on what can be done to make it happen/avoid it.
You can also prepare something not over 5 minutes to present in front of all including slides. Therefore the title Open Mic.
I always love the diversity of the group that is coming to the Future Salon and am exited about spending one evening with all all of you discussing possible futures.
We will have Wifi, so bring your laptop for interaction with the audience on the webcast as well as checking things and posting on our wiki: http://www.socialtext.net/futuresalon/index.cgi?future_salon_open_mic where I started to post some ideas, please add yours.
Please also quickly RSVP so that I know how much food and drinks to order: http://tinyurl.com/94qwu
