Ross has a political science background which is very helpful in our discussions. We talked about emergent democracy and about what the next version of my paper should address. We talked about the idea of "The Journal of Emergent Democracy" and how I probably shouldn't blog about it until we thought it through some more. ;-p We talked about doing another happening and testing emergent democracy on the process of discussing emergent democracy. He promised that he would release version 2.0 of his Ecosystem of Networks soon. I better work on my next release Emergent Democracy soon as well. Maybe I can write it on the plane back to Tokyo.
Anyway, it was the first time to spend time on-on-one with Ross and great to meet a person who has a healthy balance of academic, public sector and business interests. Something I strive to balance myself.
