Organizational Psychologist (aka: Human Connector Conduit)  in the room. It was, after all, a media driven lunch. But much to my surprise, I was very pleased to find out that it wasn't that at all. (I love being surprised)  At first, I thought it would be a whole bunch of people I didn't know (which was true except Cathy Brooks, whom invited me there- thank you Cathy!) talking about things I didn't know, but then after sitting at the table and hearing six passionate people, …

Encouraging respectful and engaging online conversations      Yesterday I attended Lunch for Good an event that explored the idea of responsible online engagement and participation. The group was inspired to discuss how we can dramatically improve the online conversation and drive more people to contribute their well-thought out opinions.            I personally believe that online conversations dramatically improve when people are encouraged …

Lunch For Good #3 - "Finding Common Ground"      Remember the show The A-Team?  If you fast forward to the end of every episode when Mr. T and the rest of the crew either solved the crime or rescued the damsel in distress, lead character John "Hannibal" Smith always closed the show with his famous quote, "I love it when a plan comes together".   And to be honest, that's how I felt as we wrapped up another amazing Lunch For Good event …

Key success factors there: people, topics and food! Live grokking underscores that there is no substitute for incarnate interaction.

About this activity


Lunch for Good is a three-part event series bringing together innovators and engaged citizens in the tech and Internet space to discuss the evolution of how people participate and interact online — and most importantly, how that progress can also coalesce to make the world a better place.

The goal is to connect our industry’s thought leaders for an ongoing, dynamic dialogue about how to improve online engagement so that it can have a positive social impact. Our themes will cover “Responsible Participation,” “Critical Thought,” and “Common Ground” respectively each month.

Over lunch, we’ll explore how we can foster better quality communities and contribution online, by focusing on a collaborated set of universal values. The outcome will cultivate a more positive, tolerant, and thoughtful culture in social media, working toward the greater good of our society as a whole.

Thursday, September 24 – Responsible Participation
Wednesday, October 22 – Critical Thought
Wednesday, November 18 – Common Ground

Lunch for Good is sponsored by Lunch.com with promotional support from SF New Tech and Social Media Club.
