One of the things we do before out #NAMA events, especially those where we’re trying to evolve a discussion, is share a reading list with those participating. Our panels are a means to a discussion, for us, audience participation is critical: it’s why we curate audiences. Our intent is to create meaningful conversations, and we’ve found that our reading lists really help: they’re useful even for those who aren’t attending.
