Several of us have expressed the general feeling that sessions at a BarCampBank, while are generally mind altering experiences, definitely miss a "what's next?" conclusion to the great conversations we've just had.
The subject has been discussed in a thread of comments to Jeffry Pilcher's post on Open Source CU
and we've had also many other offline or online conversations on the subject.
To get the ball rolling, I'd like to propose that we experiment at a coming BarCampBank (e.g. BCBSF2 the exercise of dedicating the last 5 minutes of every sessions answering a set of three questions. These answers will then be provided to other participants when everyone reconvenes for the next round of sessions.
As a first shot, I'd like to propose a tentative series of questions:
1) what is the one thing about the current subject we would like to be more of the same?
2) what is the one thing we would like to be different?
3) when do we think this could happen?
Well, the discussion is now open. Please propose alternate mechanisms we could use to give more punch to our sessions. If you like the idea of the 3 questions, please offer your own set.
PS: I've copied the different BCB's Google Groups. To get things centralized, please post on for sharing your thoughts and proposals
