Building a space for safe conversations on the web.
Everyone seems so angry when you scroll through the comments on any YouTube video, don't they?
But sit people around a dinner table, and even controversial conversations are constructive and friendly. The trick, we discovered, is to ask people about not just 'what' they think but 'why' they think so.
To manifest our idea, we created 8 large 'tact boards' and opened up relevant questions to the people of Jacksonville, Florida. The response was overwhelming. Over 100,000 people, from little 6 year old girls to proud 94 year old gentlemen, thousands of people poured their hearts out, shared their perspective and engaged in deep conversation.
Do check out the exciting 2 minute video of that experience on this page.
