CPC Conference

Wow, back from a great, but exhausting conference, the CPC Community Planning Collaborative on tools for planning, that PlaceMatters/Orton organizes every year. Not only did we organize a conference, we tied with a planning challenge in Orlando, the Innovation Way corridor (about the size of Portland).

Obviously draining our energy, but I came back with a lot of great impressions and experiences.

I held a presentation on open source tools for eparticipation, my first one in English, and added an extra kick by being late. But it went well and a great discussion followed.

And we tested a new groupware system, that expands the traditional form of a mapping exerciseby capturing all submissions georeferenced via wirelessly networkedcomputers. This enabled us to sort and group issues for the report out,as well as displaying the results online, and potentially contributingonline. What strikes me is the possibility of actually doing this type of exercise simultaniously, in a face-to-face meeting and online. Or why not continue the discourse for a couple of days, after kicking it off in a meeting.

Definitely lots of food for thought.
