All these will take place in the context of the wonderful social environment of Dagstuhl and a number of unmeetings.

(A note about unmeetings (via Jay Cross):

New approaches create meetings that people enjoy, often organized in scant time, at minimal cost. Unconferences are characterized by:

  • No keynote speaker or designated expert
  • Breakthrough thinking born of diversity
  • Having fun dealing with serious subjects
  • Emergent self-organization
  • Genuine community, intimacy and respect)
