I have to say, I don't think that concurrent sessions
would work very well. Part of the power of Inkshed
comes from the fact that people have a shared
experience - one session feeds into another in very
unexpected and rich ways.
I wasn't at PEI, but I'm intrigued by the poster
session idea. Seems like that format would work well;
people would engage to a greater or lesser degree with
the various posters, but still, they'd all be
available for review. Maybe the poster session could
be followed up by inkshedding, and then a
question-and-answer period. That period could be
concurrent, in the sense that posters could be
clustered by topic, and the Q&A for each topic cluster
could take place simultaneously (perhaps with someone
assigned to summarize questions and answers in writing
for the whole group).
Just a thought . . . I'd hate to see concurrent
sessions for 'regular' (not the best word but I'm at a
loss for a better one) sessions. I think we'd lose
more than we'd gain.
