Originally, “The Junto was a club established in 1727 by Benjamin Franklin for mutual improvement. Its purpose was to debate questions of morals, politics, and natural philosophy, and to exchange knowledge of business affairs.” [wikipedia] The response to the post was immediate, with over 111 responses, some incredibly in-depth, on Venessa's blog. Soon Dave Carroll, assistant professor at Parson's School of Design, approached Venessa with the offer to help her put together a prototype. "Delivered in Alpha" Cisco confirms Open Source TIP (Telepresence Interoperability Protocol) ((there is no "business" model - it is similar to the FCC established rules of amateur radio – non-commercial and decent communication required – except it is not using a limited frequency spectrum.)) What's going for us? What makes it different? No passwords, no registration Open collaborative design project Simple interface AN Open Design Process Interface 0.1 modular, widget-based Transparency in collaboration Demoed live at Re:publica, exposure at Social Business Edge, ARBcon Berlin, Wisdom 2.0 conference, use as backchannel for Social CMO (May) & FooCamp (July), A dedicated intentional community of innovators and initiators Future functionality live collaborative whiteboard dialogue & concept mapping capability speech-to-text engine temporal annotations - time-coded and tagged Junto video sessions for easy search & reference intuitive symbol language to express intentions of interaction (with each other & with information An emergent Discussion Platform Where are we now?
