Following our four discussion and presentation meetings, Digital Potentials Advisory members continued to converse, research, think, and sketch. Michelle Jacques, Marina Di Maio, and Emily Luce spoke one-on-one with DPA members, working to focus next steps. Marina Di Maio edited the transcripts of the group's original meetings; Mark Sanders built this website; Noya Kohavi and Emily Luce highlighted and linked the 'open doors' in the transcripts to spotlight key points. Concluding thoughts were developed and recorded by
DPA members, these are linked below.
