I have been using World Cafe in numerous settings for about 4 years and find it very adaptable and user friendly and fun.

I'm currently involved in looking at how to use technology to support learning communities in our state & want to explore the use of technology to facilitate Word Cafe conversations.

I also use the concepts and principles of Asset-Based Community Development in my work and find that it has shaped my perspective in what I do.
What would you most like to receive from this community?
connecting with others who use world cafe, particularly around the use of technology.
Would you like to share a Web or Blog address?

My current favorite quote:

Deb -- great to meet you on Tuesday!  I've mentioned to our AoH online team that you have plenty to share and they are keen to be in conversation with you.  Maybe I'll put together a MeetingWizard or some such tool to see when we can be on a Skype call together.

Hi Deb

I am a great fan in ABCD teach it all the time in helping churches reach out to urban under-served neighborhoods. Start with assets not needs. When start with assets you build on whats there, but when you start with needs you are stuck as the provider to fill the needs. Assets build people's ownership while needs build dependence. Go for it
