YOU ARE INVITED TO THIS SMALL SALON OF EXPERTS.

ACROSS OUR DIVERSE FIELDS WE ARE TACKLING THE QUESTION OF HOW TO BETTER ENGAGE THE BOTTOM-UP-OPEN-SOURCE-DISTRIBUTED-TACTICAL-INFORMAL-CROWD PHENOMENA SURROUNDING US, WHETHER IN THE SERVICE SECTOR, THE CITY, OR THE NETWORKED COMMUNITY.

OUR FOCUS IS BETTER UNDERSTANDING THE INTERSECTION OF:


  • INFORMAL AND FORMAL, 
  • ATOMISED AND CONGLOMERATE, 
  • BOTTOM-UP AND TOP-DOWN, 
  • DISTRIBUTED AND HIERARCHICAL, 
  • TACTIC AND STRATEGY, 
  • COMMUNITY AND GOVERNMENT, 
  • FLUID AND ORDERED, 
  • OPEN-SOURCE AND SECURE, 
  • CROWD AND ENABLER.


IN THIS SALON WE'LL COLLECTIVELY EXPLORE AND DEFINE THIS EVOLVING DOMAIN FROM OUR DIFFERING PERSPECTIVES.

WE'LL HEAR FROM GUEST SPEAKERS FROM THE US, JAPAN AND LOCALLY FROM ADELAIDE, MELBOURNE AND SYDNEY INCLUDING:

WE WILL COLLABORATE IN FACILITATED WORKING SESSIONS TO ESTABLISH A MULTI-PART FRAMEWORK THAT MAPS OUT THE PRESENT CHALLENGES AND THE SCOPE FOR ACTION IN OUR SPECIFIC POCKETS OF THIS EVOLVING DOMAIN.

EACH SALON PARTICIPANT WILL ALSO PRESENT THEIR CURRENT CONTEXT AND QUESTIONS.

FINALLY, TOGETHER WE WILL DEVELOP A TWELVE-PART STATEMENT COMPRISING SHORT POSITION PAPERS DRAFTED IN THE SALON. OUR AIM IS TO BUILD OPPORTUNITIES FOR SHARING AND TO BETTER COORDINATE ENERGIES WHEN WORKING ACROSS THIS QUESTION.

COMPLEMENTING THESE AMBITIONS WE’LL BE SERVED SOME SENSORY SPECIALTIES; THANKS TO OUR HOSTS WE'LL PURVEY GOLDEN AGE TREATS AND RELIVE THE PAST WHILE ENVISIONING THE FUTURE.
