Why do we meet?

Posted by johnheap on June 10, 2008

The Streamline project team meets (physically) about once per month … yet much (if not all) of the discussion could be handled online.  Yet, it seems as though activity and enthusiasm is at its peak just before a meeting (meeting the deadline) and just after (re-invigoration?).  After that it tails off … ready for the impetus of the next meeting.

I think I have suggested before that this might mean that a number of us are Web 1.0 people trying to come to terms with a Web 2.0 world.  What it certainly means is that systems, procedures and workflows we establish have to recognise that not all ‘come to the party’ with the skillset and ‘culture-set’ to engage fully … we need to offer a mix of web 2.0, Web 1.0 and Web 0.0 (‘the handshake’) to ensure full participation and interaction.
