  2. By the way, those who asked if there was somewhere they could see a copy of ‘the rules’ during the slightly controversial proceedings at the Philorum session might like to checkout the (draft) constitution on the Philorum website (link above) ­čÖé

    I think John would be happy to engage with any comments, thoughts, feedback, arguments, particularly around the topics of freedom of speech and conversation.

      1. Thanks Kate. I think what John was hoping to offer in his facilitation (and I’m sure with no intention of dissin’ the barcamp rules in any way), was a format or space for discussion that might allow more equal opportunity for sharing of ideas all round. Timid, less vocal or less assertive people can get little or no ‘airtime’, because of the enthusiasm and passion of conversations, and it is possible and a pity we could be missing some valuable contributions there. Just my observations anyway.
