That was the central question posed at our internet charette, which was held Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
What is an charette exactly? I really had no idea, but it turns out it’s a creative space in which a big giant brain dump/intellectual distillation can take place. You invite a lot of different people with different experiences and perspectives and ask them to spend some time ruminating on a certain subject, in this case what our internet presence should do and be. Everything from the big vision stuff to the nuts and bolts. No rules except that you should leave all preconceived notions at the door and feel free to break whenever you need one.
There was an intense amount of cranial power gathered in the room. Had we been able to physically tap it, the collective mind could have powered Burlington’s electric grid, I’m sure.
