Occupy Meeting: Death By PowerPoint, Resurrection By Tablet.

Occupy Meeting: “Death By PowerPoint, Resurrection By Tablet is a manifesto for a new, more substantial workplace. Stop meeting after the meeting.”

Quotes from the manifesto:

“Research shows that individuals create best in solitude and isolation. Committees and meetings do not create. Their role is to serve as mediums of dissent and contention.

Great meetings are gladiatorial arenas where ideas conceived in isolation can do battle. In this war, data is the primary weapon. The tablet can be the ubiquitous window into the world of data.

[…] Empowerment in the sense of permission is a meaningless word to the maker. Meaningful empowerment means resources.”
