Drop it like it’s hot
This is the kind of idea that is really intriguing to me, for better or worse. A German non-profit organization is undertaking a project to share thoughts and opinions from thinkers and influential people from around the world. What I really like is that they give registrants the option to submit their own questions, vote on existing questions, and help decide who will actually participate as a speaker in the “Table of Free Voices” in Berlin on Sept 9 of this year.
This seems like the kind of thing that could end up being totally cool or completely flop, depending on a number of factors. The questions would have to be thought-provoking as well as broad enough that most people will find something to engage them. The participants should be influential but also suited enough to the format that they can express their views well.
Overall I think this has potential, and I like the idea. I’m gonna go vote on some questions now.
