Another form is the silent meeting , put forth by David Gasca at Twitter and used at Amazon as well.

Dear @WashingtonPost

I’ll also be glad to subscribe to the Post once it stops trying to track me off their site. Same goes for The New York Times , The Wall Street Journal and other papers I value and to which I no longer subscribe.

Blog Post: To have a conversation, you have to be comfortable being human

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen I have long been a huge fan of David Weinberger. Read more about him here and watch the video. He is such an amazing thinker. In particular, I love his insights into conversation such as the one below. To have a conversation, you have to be comfortable being human - acknowledging you don't have all the answers, being eager to learn from someone else and to build new ideas together. You can only have a conversation if you're not afraid of being wrong.
