How about an expert panel discussion on the future of rules...

... on future innovations, applications, jobs, etc. in the rules business... i.e. whatever is on their minds? The idea is to have experts ask each other the questions that they ask themselves. Letting the audience listen in like flies on the wall could be eye-opening and informative.

All we need is a few speakers and a moderator for a 45"-1hour session. I vote for James to moderate and to bring the cane just in case.

This is a slight twist on the idea I mentioned on the call to have experts talk to each other about their biggest "challenges". Obviously vendors don't want to air their dirty laundry. Instead, why not put them on stage and hear their thoughts on the industry, future directions, challenges and opportunities we all face.

Great idea - and this would be a great way to start (or end) the Monday Tuturoals or the final session on Friday just before noon.

One twist though is to allow the attendees to ask questions about half-way through the presentation. A "suggested" format would be a big clock with a sweep second hand, no more the two minutes per person and one microphone that is passed from person to person, Otherwise we might have someone filibuster and get into marketing discussions.
