Harvard Square, Cambridge
Featured guest: Jayne Karolow, LocaModa
Here's the word from our featured guest:
'Last roundtable, I spoke about Wiffiti, in particular its goal of encouraging organic, proactive conversations amongst people who would typically never interact with each other; it's been a highly successful social model. Now I'd like to take a look at the flip side of community media... When information comes into the mix, are we doing more harm than good by venerating "groupthink"?'
Online reading recommended by Jayne:Please remember that there's never any need to make a reservation to attend Ethos Roundtable events. Just come if you can, and feel free to invite others! However, if you're planning to attend the Boston 501 Tech Club event at 6:00 pm, we ask that you send an email to Kathleen Sherwin of TechFoundation (ksherwin AT techfoundation DOT org). Since TechFoundation is providing the free food and drink, it's courteous to let them know how much to order.
