Most of our discussion today focused on two sides of the same coin: our schedule.

Strategic invites…if you think we should send a special invite to someone and you don’t see them on this list, let us know!

About unconferencing…We’ve been talking about how to make unconferencing work. First, we decided that we’d have a “pre-meeting” intro to unconferencing session where people can propose unconferencing topics and lightning talks. We thought we could at least start a list as a way to motivate people to register and join us. This would be during the November 23rd Design Forum.

Then, we talked about different kinds of interactive tools that we could use that will help the process of proposing topics and voting engaging. Here are two tools that came up:

We can use either tool free of charge. Anyone used either of these, either as a moderator or as a participant?
