The aspiration of our time for wholeness, empathy and depth of awareness is naturally adjunct of electric technology.

> The principle of independent judgements (and related errors) has immediate applications for the conduct of meetings … A simple rule can help: before an issue is discussed, all members of the committee should be asked to write a very brief summary of their position. This procedure makes good use of the value of the diversity of knowledge and opinion in the group. The standard practice of open discussion gives too much weight to the opinions of those who speak early and assertively, causing others to line up behind them.
— Daniel Kahneman
