There was a spark that has happened at the conference. It was most notable at the early stages, but it never died down. That spark needs to be kept alive, realized, and updated to be integrated to today. What was it about some of those exciting early days that really lead to huge developments that we now take for granted? Can we stoke those flames again? After building such fires, did we learn anything? etc. On the other side of the coin, the ones who have either found their own or are searching for new directions can help enlighten those who already have their ways confined by experience.
