How To Herd Cats


Despite the hacker ethic of free information real life frameworks for constructive dialogue are sadly lacking. Interestingly a number of systems, from socratic dialogue to parliamentary procedure already exist for structuring conversation toward a goal. In this talk we will look at hacker workgroups from open source developers to CTF teams and look at what solutions have been tried, and what tools have been developed. Also, this topic lends itself to analysis of common hacker roles and social structures that define and impede growth and development within the community.
