story time. . .

hey guys

I just want to check in and see what everyone has been up to the past few days.

I've been away for two solid days for medical appointments so I apologize for not really being available.

I want to make sure everyone is clear on what the issue was with our last report, and although we don't have to re-submit any work, i think it would be really beneficial to re-work some of it for our own benefit.

The next stage is scenario-building. for those of you who haven't done it before, it's essentially telling a story that really captures the idea of our POD's and where we think the IOT could go.
although we are not ready to start writing the story yet, please start thinking of ways you would like to A) Tell the story and B) Present it. What are some effective ways of story-telling? What kinds of story-telling tactics do you find you respond to the most? What are some potential plots/story-lines that you think would really communicate our ideas and be captivating at the same time?

Please bring some stuff to class tomorrow - re-worked POD's, re-worked Amplifications about the IOT itself. Please also keep in mind the idea of IOT as an ECOLOGY as we do some re-working and planning for the next stage.

I also propose a group meeting ASAP. Anyone free on Friday afternoon - about 2:30pm?

please comment asap so we can arrange

ta ta,
team leader

    I'm free friday at 2:30, I'll be at work but maybe we can meet there?

    I've got some good directions for presenting, I'll do some more thinking on scenario building though before we meet.
