We came up with the following. To get you into the right mindset we will start out the evening in small groups of up to 6 people that tackle the following questions:
- What collective capability need to be improved.
- What things would you like to improve electronically with other people that you can't do currently?
- What can we do to collectively get better at understanding and solving complex problems?
- How do we get smarter as a group?
- What makes a group of people look dumper(smarter) than they are?
This is happening form 6:30 to 7:20 every 20 minutes or so we rearrange the groups. The suggestions are collected and Doug will try to tailor his talk to a couple of these suggestions. (We derived this a bit from the Brain Jams and Christopher Allen's Weave suggestion)
This is going to be really interesting. It will be broadcast not only to the world, but also into Second Life where in anticipation of the event some enthusiasts have already created an avatar for Doug Engelbart.
