Observable Workshop | 9am to 12:30pm EDT
Join Jim McGee, Jon Udell, Peter O'Kelly, Brian Tullis, Paula Thornton, Larry Hawes, Jack Vinson and others for a Observable Workshop from 9:00 AM to 12:20 PM EDT 14 Oct to discuss the pattern that Jon called observable work in 2009: "... the idea that by narrating our work, we can perhaps restore some of what was lost when factories and then offices made work opaque and not easily observable." This will be a lively session based on this summer's globe spanning Twitter and blog discussion of Observable Work.
