5. Rapid group idea lab sessions at tables: Groups self-organised to provide collaborative answers to the questions posted on the pre-event network.
6. Telling the stories: Groups presented their answers to each other, in the form of a story about a user experience
7. Overview and next steps
8. End and drinks

And finally, the recordings of the stories made by the groups, can be found on our blip.tv channel:
Question 1 - A new digital music label for the South West.. ?
Question 2 - Can we do something hyper-local?
Question 3 - How can we use data visualisation to explore strategy and capacity in the environmental movement?
Question 4 - What dimensions are valuable to people as they go about their everyday lives? How can those dimensions be sensed and presented?
Question 7 - What would a young entrepreneur sandbox look like?
Question 9 - How would we go about engaging with Bristol people to start re-using public drinking fountains instead of buying YAPB (yet another plastic bottle)?
Our blip.tv channel will be active throughout the whole scheme, so do check back for updates from time to time.
We’re really sorry to report that due to a technology failure, we’re unable to put stories 5 and 6 online, these questions were:
How do we connect with key audiences about voluntary carbon offsetting, via the digital platform? - posed by Sam Burkey from the Converging World
How can we harness the power of social networking and new technologies to provide new and exciting entertainment propositions? - posed by Gavin Henderson, Head of programmes at Presentable Television
If anyone from these groups would like to briefly write up the stories, we’d be happy to share them.
