Subject: CoLABoration 2010 (Program for the Future) March 3 - Invitation to  apply


We are seeking candidates to apply for participation a grand experiment in cross-disciplinary collaboration March 3 at The Tech Museum.  

This event is CoLABoration 2010, where we will experiment with Doug Engelbart's idea of "co-evolution" - bringing together representatives of many disciplines, all focused on improving human and technological tools for collaboration. We are firing up the global brain.  We have many expert tool builders and facilitators who will be demonstrating their innovations as we work together -- people from science, medicine, education, business, government and communication sectors.  We will be filling slots in specific categories.

We will experience demos of a variety of facilitation techniques, then will experiment with technologies for interaction and capture.  We hope to create an ongoing community, based on a deep conviction that we must bring different disciplines together. And the right people from those disciplines to explore the potential for collaboration. We are limited to 100 participants but will have many online from a global audience.  Most of the activities will take place at tables, with people moving about for our "mash up" with structured interactions and reports.  We will archive all of the inputs from the day and, we hope, create an ongoing collaborative cross-disciplinary community.

The event is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. , then a tour of The Tech Museum, followed by dinner that will include a Gov. 2.0 panel with Tim O'Reilly and Bill Fenwick. During the day, we will have many thought leaders in collaboration, including Verna Allee, a pioneer of Value Networks, and Nilofer Merchant, author of the New How (the new O'Reilly book on collaboration)., as well as collaborative technology experts and leaders in the different disciplines. We have decided not to differentiate between "speakers" and "participants" and are asking everyone to pay the fee of $185 to cover costs and scholarships for the youths who will be coming.
