I think Russ might have made a central point in describing an aspect of
the EXCEPTIONAL Meeting. People "aim to connect."
It's amazing me, after twenty five years of playing with collaboration,
how subtle collaboration is, how little understood, and how profound of a
gestalt shift it is to move from a competitive to a collaborative
I'm still not happy with the term Exceptional Meeting. It's better than
"Good Meeting." But it doesn't really point to the moment, the instance of
the exceptional. Not that I want to create any more jargon, but rather
better to understand the nature of this kind of self-to-other
