At the risk of getting a little boring I'd like to briefly talk about Randomised Coffee Trials again. Quite simply, if you have not taken a look at them yet - then give over a few minutes of your time to learn about them.

Apart from other benefits they are a powerful way of increasing the opportunities for serendipity and thus innovation in your organization - something I talk about here There is something special about meetings in the flesh which cannot be replicated digitally.

I also just came across a service called Global Hangouts which is designed to "ignite inspiring conversations about pressing global issues by introducing young people from different countries to each other."

It seems a great concept and you can see the connection to RCTs. I would give it a go myself but I don't quite fit the "young people" profile. Maybe I should create one for "oldies" like me :-)

Actually, I think it would be far more interesting to connect young people with old people across cultural divides - it would make for some potentially interesting conversations.
