Not so much exploration as building on existing content
Thanks for the video and recommendations!
To be honest, I see #lote as interactive as it can get. Have you seen the programme? Aside from these short discourse, the community is everywhere and interacting.

So are you thinking the ideas above could go somewhere specific? In the breakout sessions people can organize in whichever way they want for 2.5 hrs.
think of the agenda as a general layout, but the content is ours to create: we can have interactive walls, with questions, post its, interesting captions etc. We can also find original ways of reporting what’s being discussed… But because there are so many interesting, fun people here, it can only get great!
But this isn’t only about exploration, brainstorming and unlimited creativity, because we’re aiming for concrete results, so it’s more of a reporting exercise in my opinion: we want to send out a clear message about our transition. We’re pulling big guns, and we can’t leave it all spontaneous: we know one another’s experiences, and now we even have a meta view of those.
Does it make sense? Maybe others here think differently, but I think designing the event is very much related to the specific goal for having it in the first place: which is to meet with people that may not understand our stories, or if they understand they may not know what to do with them, and so we need to find the best way to communicate our experiences.
The unconference, on the other hand, will be pretty much what you describe… and more.
