What do the presenters intend with this symposium?
  Larry Prusak 

    There are various things that we are all collectively learning. 
   This isnít Fermatís Last Equation. 
   Thereís not one single answer. Thereís no dogma, 
    I mean, I sometimes speak forcefully, but we donít know the answers to these things. 
    Neither do you. 
    None of us do. 
    We are working on it. 
    We are doing experiments. 

John Seely Brown

    What we would like to do is to throw at you some ideas, We have assembled here a collection of evocative objects, idea sparkers. Rather than any very formal type of presentation. In the smattering of ideas here, some of these will connect with you, and some of them wonít. What weíre hoping is that there will be something of particular interest to each person here. I can guarantee that it wonít be the same thing. 
   What we have is a set of lenses through which to view new landscapes of the 21st century. The richness of perspective, the diversity of frameworks, and the depth of insights the speakers provide on the subject of knowledge and storytelling offer a wealth of information that is seldom found in one place. It is our hope that these interactions and their multiple perspectives will help others to create new frameworks for constructing new knowledge and lay the foundation for future discussion, negotiation, and sharing.
