The hypothetical meeting

Hat tip to Elizabeth Elliot for sharing part of this idea.

What if we created a meetup or even a small conference for deep conversations only. No small talk allowed, plus a couple other ground rules:

  • All strangers
  • First names only
  • No talking about your personal education, background, or experience
  • Never followup with anyone who attends

This would totally not work for a number of practical reasons. But just consider, how would it go? What would we talk about?
