    • What we want isn’t always what we need.
      Agreeing on what to get is even harder.
    • Things to Discuss Today
      • Introductions
      • New Technology: Online Community Storytelling
      • Elevating the Value of Douglas County
      • Using Technology to Bridge the Generation Gap
      • Incubation and Growth: A New Story
    • Thoughts to Start Discussion
      Cynics start with “That won’t work.”
      Leaders debate ideas without criticizing people:
      “How can we make this work?”
      Keep things positive to get a good result.
      No views you hear today belong to any organization, and are only the opinions of individuals.
      The purpose of today’s event is to stimulate dialogue.
      No one person knows the answer to life’s problems.
      Together we achieve more.
      We’re all in this together.
