Real-time/social communication

How do we facilitate those knowledge clubs and their needed interactions.

  • Foster continuation of those experiences David describes of working together around the blackboard together.
  • Possibility for even virtual reality. - Has a long way to go yet to be to a point where it would be sufficient.
  • Can it be done somewhat more asynchronously and still feel that intense social interaction/connection?
  • As the social connection is enhanced there is better ability to work together asynchronously between times.
  • The amount of knowledge gap between people is a big factor.
  • The literal interaction needs can be hugely different - for instance, typing out lots of formulas in LaTex or whatever is simply not nearly as effective or functional or just writing it out on a piece of paper or a whiteboard.
