Every once in a while we see a new type of site developing on Pressible. The most recent of these is a conference site that starts building content before the conference even begins. Our two examples are http://create.pressible.org/ and http://creativitysymposium.pressible.org/. Both of these sites use Pressible to start introducing participants in the conference to each other as well as beginning discussions on some of the ideas.
This is a great way to both build awareness, and interest in a conference or symposium, but also to start engaging participants before they even enter the actual symposium space. It will be interesting to see if this facilitates more in depth discussion by giving people some common resources to which they can refer. Perhaps this will turn out to be a jumpstart for conversations and discussions in person. We can’t wait to find out.
