Concordia College of Business and Organizational Leadership is hosting a free community discussion entitled: Should Wi-Fi in Saint Paul be publicly owned? It will take place on Jan. 17, 3:30 to 6 p.m. at Concordia's Library & Technology Center.
Here's more details and registration information. (You do need to register!)
Futurist Joel Barker will lead the discussion. He currently teaches at Concordia and will use a tool he created called the Implications Wheel which has a large crowd try to come up with all possible implications of a proposed idea or decision. It's related to James Surowiecki's book Wisdom of the Crowds.
St. Paul Pioneer Press has an article on Barker and the Wheel.
