Don't make me do this

This is brilliant, and something every conference organizer needs to put at the very heart of their program: Stop Doing Things to People. David Gurteen is so right when he points out that so many of our interactions (especially at conferences!) are designed to "make" someone do something differently. Can you imagine how different a conference would be if instead of having thought leaders dropping nuggets of wisdom about how we can do things their way, it was designed to facilitate everyone finding better ways to work with each other? I can't even really picture how that would be, but boy is it interesting to contemplate. (Thanks to Johnnie Moore for the pointer.)
