An article about Ars Electronica caught my attention.
Wired News: City Survives Art Geek Invasion [From Ars Electronica, Austria]
“One of the coolest things about this year’s festival was that the organizers got a bunch of senior geeks to speak about the future, and a bunch of youngsters to speak about the past,” said festival attendee Frank Capone, from Portland, Maine. “It worked brilliantly. The older folks had a more grounded picture of the future, and the kids audited the past with no emotional attachments.”
It reminded me of Joel in the Bible: “Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions”
It also reminded me of the Young Leader/Emergent events where we have had the old leaders and the young leaders speak together.
