[SNEC] Selecting the topic; inviting speakers
Thu, 7 Nov 2002 23:07:07 -0500
I suggest the following topic/theme for the meeting on January 25-26:
A Fuller Explanation: Building on Amy Edmondson's Explanation of
The Synergetic Geometry of R. Buckminster Fuller
Any suggestions for improvement?
We need to solicit speakers for six 45 minute presentations (or four 45
minute presentations and four 20 minute presentations). Here are the
presentation subjects for which I think we should solicit speakers:
1. Keynote Talk on Synergetic Geometry (I will offer this slot to Amy)
2. Geodesic Domes
4. The Vector Equilibrium / IVM
5. The Jitterbug And/Or Design Science
(Look at a copy of Amy's table of contents for other reasonable
Since we would like to expand our base with new names & faces, several
speakers should be drawn from outside our current group.
Who should we invite to speak on each of the above topics?
Who should we invite independent of topic?
The lesson of history is that our firmest convictions are not to be
asserted dogmatically; in fact they should be most suspect; they mark
not our conquests but our limitations and our bounds. -- Morris Kline
