In my book about the future of science, I’m currently working on the chapters about online collaboration.
As a result of this work, my thinking about online collaboration has condensed sufficiently that I’d like to give a seminar on the topic sometime soon, to get some feedback on my current thinking, and (ideally) to meet more people with related interests. As an indicator of the kinds of things I find interesting, an early draft of part of those chapters is my article on Kasparov versus the World. A seminar would cover far more, though, and include a general discussion of what makes some online collaborations succeed, and others fail, and of the long-term prospects for online creative collaboration.
Ideally, I’d like to speak somewhere in the greater Toronto (broadly construed) area, probably in December, and to an audience with a broad spectrum of backgrounds, including some who are already knowledgeable about online collaboration.
If there’s anyone out there who’s interested in hearing me speak on the topic, and willing to arrange a seminar, I’d love to hear from you (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
