Welcome, Overview, Stage-Setters
Tuesday 27 July 2010, 2:00pm - 2:35pm

What brings us here? What do we want to accomplish in our time together this week and beyond?

This session set the stage for the rest of the meeting. After a brief welcome and review of the program and agenda, colleagues offered reflections on what brought us together and what we wanted to accomplish. They situated the inaugural Tarrytown Meeting in a variety of historical contexts; surveyed the social, political and technological environment in which we met; and shared collective and personal visions of what we were in a position to accomplish in the days surrounding Tarrytown and in the years beyond.

  • Welcome and overview (6 min)
  • Introduce yourselves to those on either side of you (5 min)
  • Reflections (Three @ 8 min each)
