Thinker Update:

Attention to all the hard core attendees who keep figuring out how to brave the wilds of traffic and life to make it to our 2-hr Friday night sessions at Oakland City Hall:

* * * We are canceling next Friday night, Mar 17, and moving it to join OpenOakland's City Camp 2017 on Saturday, all day, March 25 at Oakland City Hall.

+ We're also adding new options, dates, and engagement methods so everyone who wants to engage with our subject matter, and each other, can do so more easily.

We hear you saying Friday nights are really challenging to attend but you love the involvement and subject matter.

While we develop more engagement options come join us at City Camp to continue the conversation we had planned as it is very much like theirs.

It's an amazing event hosted by Code for America's OpenOakland Brigade, and the City of Oakland, and you will see, hear, and meet so many people who are working on the same ideas, you'll love it.

It's free to register so please do it now:

A little more about the reschedule:

Our goal is to present new ideas, brainstorm solutions, and connect the dots so we can take action to make real answers together.

We want to engage as many people who'd like to be involved and be mindful many people are limited by dates, locations, transportation, and times of day.

You'll start to see more transmedia sessions, recorded videos, live streaming sessions, and ability to meet people from other cities to collaborate via telepresence - after all, it is 2017 and we don't really need to sit in traffic to work together.

Canceling March 17 to move the group to join March 25 adds richness to the audience interaction and creates more connections for us all.


As a reminder, this was the agenda for March 17 which we'll have in mind at City Camp on March 25:
