Tomorrows Future Salon Changed to Open Mike
- Hi Futurists,
Blog post with links:
Jamais Cascio who wanted to talk about Green Tomorrows just pinged me.
He is not feeling well and in all likelihood will not be able to make
it tomorrow :-( We wish him well and hope to have him speak another
time. Update: Just talked to him and he really sounded bad, we decided
if he doesn't feel better by tomorrow morning, we will try at least a
5 minute session via Skype and have him back later this year.
But we will not let this opportunity to meet and exchange great ideas
pass. Let's do an Open Mike Future Salon, which we have done twice
before and it was very popular.
How does it work? If there is an idea or article that you feel
passionate about and would like to share with your fellow futurists,
sign up at the beginning of the evening for a slot. (Unconference
Style) You have 5 minutes to present and there is another 5 minutes
for discussion with the audience. (In exceptional cases where the
interaction level is high, we may extend it by another 5 minutes) then
we give the mike to the next passionate participant.
The good news is, that John Smart and Iveta Brigis have moved up from
Southern California recently. Many of you know them as they organized
the Accelerating Change Conference at Stanford. They are helping me
with the Future Salon and will participate tomorrow too. It is going
to be an interesting evening. Sorry for the short notice. Please don't
be shy, present for 5 minutes and spread the word. See you all
tomorrow Thursday 28th 6pm at SAP in Palo Alto. Sorry for the last
minute change, Mark.
P.S. A Future Salon has the following structure: 6-7 networking with
light refreshments proudly sponsored by SAP. From 7-9+ pm presentation
and discussion. SAP Labs North America, Building D, Room Southern
Cross or Cafeteria depending on how many people sign up. SAP is
located at 3410 Hillview Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304 map As always
free and open to the public, spread the news.
