The theme this year is facilitation. It's a huge topic, so we narrowed it down to focus on facilitating scheduled activities. The idea is to use a variety of facilitation techniques, provide plenty of opportunities for the participants to guide the selection of topics, and include a lot of meta-conversation about the techniques themselves. Being a group of online community enthusiasts a common thread throughout the day will be to think about if and how each activity could be implemented online.
We're using etherpad for our rough planning notes, then organizing everything in the OCE2012 wiki. Here'a a wordle of today's meeting.
