The State of Publishing
Monday, October 8, 2012 from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
A focused roundtable on PUBLISHING.
There are so many things we can learn from one another. What's worked. What hasn't. What lessons we've learned from running newspapers, magazines, blogs or making photos, videos, or status updates.
This forum invites a round view of perspectives to get back to learning from one another. Come with an open mind, and be ready to listen as well as share your view. Great conversation has a center, not sides.

WHY WE'RE HOSTING THIS
Orangutan Swing is dedicated to creating offline conversation space. We use the techniques from Edward de Bono's Six Thinking Hats as well as William Isaacs' Dialogue and the Art of Thinking Together for our facilitation.
We've conducted more than 200 conversation tables in Seattle, Durham, and County Cork, Ireland, since 2005, and this year, our goal is to make 30.
So far, we've hosted "Make: What's the creative process?", "Scale: How do you know when and if to grow?", "(re)WORK," as well as several others.

When & Where
Design Kompany & Orangutan Swing
Design Kompany is a two-person studio that designs dialogue. We make great conversation fluid, so we get to potent concepts. That's where we build designs for brand identity, and locate the words to best describe what our clients do in ways that are compelling and authentic, too.
We started in Raleigh, NC, as undergraduates in 1995. After 10 years in County Cork, Ireland, as well as Seattle, we're back and amazed at the local evolution in Durham, NC.
