Computer says no. What broken computers and conferences have in common.

Wonderful article! One thing I noticed was the dominant theme of “output” driven activity. I.e. getting as many opinions as possible from as wide an audience. “Editing mode” already hints at a highly complementary activity: listening, recording and redacting. I’ve had some great success with something called “Hyperactive Listening” ( as well as with a modified version of the Fishbowl: (where we added an etherpad to the outside loop and other feedback mechanisms, resulting in 75–80% activity levels).
In general, I would argue that truly attentative listening can be “activity” too, especially if followed-up with analytical processing. Even if it is just generating/noting new questions to address.

Like what you read? Give Thomas Goorden a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
