I had the pleasure of joining several dozen other invited guests on Thursday afternoon at the Vanderbilt Center for Better Health, for episode number two in what the VU Medical Center "Web Council" is calling its "Web Jam." The CBH specializes in holding dynamic brainstorming sessions not only for Vanderbilt University groups and organizations but also for large corporations and institutions.
The Jam was most interesting, taking place over an hour and a half of dry-erase board scrawling, face to face chats (I met a number of folks I'd only emailed in the past), and group presentation and dialog. The time went by both fast-paced and leisurely. At the end, the consensus seemed to be that there needs to be a concerted effort to standardize not only Web presence content but policies. Perhaps Thursday's meet-up will be a step in that direction!
Thanks to Melanie Moran, Vanderbilt University News Service Associate Director, and Vanderbilt Web Spiders for the invite!
Here's a couple snapshots of some of the collective brain-dump to give you an example of the yield (note the sad and lonely single notation of Second Life--wonder who put that one up?:):
