Cultures of Participation Symposium

Gerhard Fischer held a symposium as part of his evaluation for his NSF CDI grant–a great group of people attended, gave feedback, and spoke (Barbara Ragoff from UCSC, Shirley Brice Heath from Stanford, and locals Alex Repenning and Michael Eisenberg). Members of the project participated too: Jason Zietz and Hal Eden gave demos. A great, integrative effort toward enhancing cultures of participation, with an exemplar problem of sustainability and smart use of electricity). Pulling together a diverse group can give feedback you wouldn’t typically expect–it was enlightening to see the tensions between the builders, the number crunchers, and the ethnographers. It seems difficult to alter significantly the course of the grant at this stage, but there’s always opportunities for more grants.

(And thanks WordPress for trashing the longer version of my writeup…I’m now hunting for another blogging tool.)
