** A few post-event conversations from folks who I met on the trade room floor – and email follow ups!

  1. I apologize for rushing through the section on equality vs equity + Millennials and forgetting to mention gender-women’s issues.  We would also want to include LGBTQ issues.  You can see more on the evolution of this visual meme here.  The provocation is imagining how the Millennials might elevate equity and social justice issues in the sustainability Venn circles from the NYLA Sustainability Roadmap.
  2. I also did not dive deep into privacy concerns around the ‘creepy vs compelling’ line of data driven innovation.  There are obvious concerns and a subject that will continue to evolve.
  3. And I mispronounced Latham 😉
