The interest in "Conversation Cafés" seems to be growing. I recently stumbled on yet another site. This is how the home page starts:
Why Conversation Cafés? Because when you put strangers, caffeine and ideas in the same room, brilliant things can happen. For that very reason, the British Parliament banned coffeehouses in the 1700s as hotbeds of sedition. Might we brew up a similar social liveliness now? With democracy, critical thinking and "the ties that bind" all under siege, this may be the most radical cup of coffee you ever drink.
Conversation Cafés are about having interesting conversations on almost anything that matters. Knowledge Cafés such as the Gurteen Knowledge Café are about having interesting conversations on our organizational and business lives.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
