Scope and purpose

December 2nd is a more traditional, sit-down-around-a-conference-table kind of meeting with funders, partners, and co-conveners at the offices of the American Alliance of Museums.
The purpose of the December 2nd meeting is to sift through and digest inputs from the December 1st unconference/Ignite and facilitate a sustained discussion and debate about the scope and validity of the Openlab Concept.

This meeting is full - - but...

  • ...we're going to run it as openly and transparently as possible (see below)
  • And the December 1st unconference and Ignite is free and open - - Register

We will be live-tweeting and (probably) wiki-casting this meeting

  • We'll use the Chatham House Rule - - everything said can (and probably will) be repeated publicly, but comments can only be attributed to speakers with their permission
  • Conversations will be tweeted and written on the wiki in real-time
  • Please join us and participate virtually through Twitter at @OpenlabW and #openlabworkshop
