Giving us an opportunity to get to know each other, we had a so-called speed-dating session which focused on the concept "dwelling." For three minutes we were supposed to talk to one of the other participants and then we were to switch tables and talk to someone else. It was interesting to see how some focused on the technology, with which we all work and its implications on the our dwellings, physical as well as digital, and some on the various definitions of the concept and its connotations. It was also interesting to see that many people began their discussions with me with a "We were discussing..." indicating that what they "know" about dwelling is the result of the joint effort we are currently creating.
