Whats up good people!?!
I'll be hanging around the lobby at the Hilton downtown on 4th street tonight, just north of the Austin Convention Center at 9:00pm-9:30pm. From there we will walk up to 6th, heading west, and lets just see where that takes us.
About brainstorming(from past newsletters):
"I see brainstorm walkabout conversations starting out with brief intros, followed by an informal poll of what interests there are for "seeds", the term for what we use in our Qualcomm Incorporated brainstorming sessions as a starting point to get an idea of where begin. We then rotate through thoughts from everyone about the seeds, one adding on top of what the others have said. The moderator does what we call "bending" of the seeds, gently moving the conversation towards collisions with interesting side problems. Some of the most amazing things happen with these discussions. At Qualcomm, where myself and a few others founded an employee driven patent generation group called FLUX(Forward Looking User Experience), these conversations have led to more than 60 patent filings in 60 months. We have teams in several countries with a couple hundred employees participating. (BTW, the SXSW 2015 #RoboStache fun is not a Qualcomm sponsored or endorsed activity)"
