WIP – Post Sustainability Deliberation

This past Tuesday marked the end of our deliberation on sustainability. After three days of discussion, I got a lot of experience being a part of a non-biased deliberation. Although I expected there to be arguments between competing viewpoints, I found that our group agreed on most things. From here, we are to get involved in an online deliberation which I expect to be a lot more aggressive than the physical one. Because people are hidden behind a computer, they tend to speak their mind more. This may cause people to disagree more, pulling away from a respectable deliberation atmosphere. There is also no real moderator, which may make things interesting. We shall see what happens over the next 2 weeks.
