Jessica: The layers of people in software and people in software and how we’re all learning. It gets hard to separate the people from the technology.
Also, having goals you DON’T want to achieve.
Coraline: Seeing crowdsourcing being successful.
Jamey: Curiosity isn’t necessarily about finding out the answer. It’s the pursuit of the magic.
The tenuous path we all take in life, and what decisions cause us to be on the right path to the right here, right now.
Pamela: If we collaborate with the technology, maybe we won’t get silenced.
