This Is an Experiment

by Molly Sheridan

This ballroom is cavernous, so it's going to be a test of the technology and the guest speakers to see how well we do on this whole "engagement" concept, I think. There are screens set up behind the speakers on stage and then a few more hanging from the ceiling midway down the room. They each display a different comment and will be constantly changing as the event progresses. Right now we've got a mix of pullquotes from the AJ blog this week and comments from the crowd gathered here (and the room is definitely filling up and buzzing). Everyone certainly sounds excited.

Doug McLennan kicks off the event by asking everyone to turn their cellphones on and take a picture of the room, and then email it to the blog. He'll be adding them to this page throughout the event for the viewers at home. A little virtual hello from those of us in Nashville to you at home.
