The Design fishbowl went really well. There wasn't a ton of arguing, and the people joining in had plenty of great things to add to the conversation. I really liked the barefoot shoes that came up in the conversation. Everyone handled the conversation with great maturity and I was very happy that there were no arguments.
I thought that the design fishbowl went very well. I think that we stayed on topic and succeeded in discussing important topics and bringing in new ideas. It was awesome to have the opportunity to discuss with Mr. Long and Dr. Ash Casey. Overall as a class we were bringing up much more relevent points and backing up our ideas with examples and evidence from the book. I think that the design fishbowl went well and I definately gained a better understanding and new ideas from it.
The design fishbowl went well. Everyone had good points to argue, and they were all able to come up with textual support for their points. It was very interesting to see some of the topics that were brought up during this blog. It was also cool that people from as far away as the United Kingdom were able to join in the discussion.
To be totally honest, it took a lot from me not to laugh at during this fishbowl because I felt that it went so, so well! The conversation was alive, people were really listening, and our conversation changed topics at a reasonable rate. Not to be exaggerative or anything, but I think it went extremely well. I so hope that Dr. Casey, Mr. Fisch, and Mr. Long can join us once again.
Both the inside and outside circle worked well during the Design Fishbowl. The extra contributors on the Live Blog really helped to add variety and insight to the conversation. The inside circle maintained a good conversation throughout the fishbowl and good questions were asked. However, in the future fishbowls might be improved if there is more communication between the inside and outside circle.
This fishbowl went so well. I believe that this was easily our best fishbowl yet. Having other people that we have never met coming in to talk with us. I had a great discussion with Mr. Long regarding beauty in society and I thought it went so well. Hopefully we have more productive fishbowls during AWNM.
The fishbowl went extremely well, and I thought that it was extremely successful. Having others come in to blog with us was fabulous because it got other points of view and other backgrounds and experiences to help us better understand the Design section in Daniel H. Pink's book A Whole New Mind.
I thought that the design fishbowl was really productive, and I think that it is amazing how much help the other voices in the blog were. One flaw that I think occurred was that there were a lot of conversations that were just between two people and so I think that next blog we should still work with the outside community but incorporate more people in each conversation.
I thought that this fishbowl went very well compared to the last one. We expanded to a variety of new topics and did not just stick to one topic. We were able to also use text to back up what we were saying. Also a lot of people joined the middle group and we stayed on topic in the outer circle. There was a lot of good thoughts that were backed up and that made the fishbowl a lot more interesting.
I thought that this fishbowl went extremely well. There was good thorough conversation with interesting topics. I liked how the random people like Dr. Casey blogged in. I had a great conversation with him.
I think this was one of the best fishbowls we've had in a while. I'm not sure why but it just flowed nicely and there weren't a lot of times when we had nothing to talk about. No one got mad at each other and everyone participated. While staying interested, people brought up some really good points for discussion. Congrats class.
In all honesty, I think this was one of the best fishbowls we have had all semester. The conversation seemed to flow really well, and there were many good connections made to other things that we have talked about previously. I also thought that there were many points made on how this design chapter could apply to more then just a right-brained person. So I think that this fishbowl was able to use the details in the chapter to extend to our life as students and in school.
In all honesty, I quite liked the fishbowl. The points made were validated, the cover it live part was still very confusing, but served its purpose. The people in the outside circle, did come inside, and interact and further the discussion. It was compelling and supported. Arguing was kept to a minimum, and I think more people were focused on the discussion rather than their computer screens.

I was in the inner circle for this fishbowl, so I'm not really sure how the blog went. However, I felt the discussion in the inner circle flowed really well. I liked the topics we talked about and it seemed like everyone had really thought about coming prepared. Hopefully our future fishbowls will be as successful as this one.
I really enjoyed the design fishbowl, because I think that everyone gave really good examples of design, and I was able to understand Pink's logic better than I did before the fishbowl. I thought that the guest bloggers added helpful and interesting insights into the book. When the bloggers debated the question of running shoes versus no running shoes, the guest bloggers provided a lot of information about the pros and cons of running shoes, which related directly to design. Overall, I think this was one of the most productive and educational fishbowls yet.
Eric2013 said... I thought that the design fishbowl went reasonably well. I thought that the guests to the discussion (on the blog) added a lot to the discussion and the inner circle managed to stay on topic well, as did the blog. There were, however, a few improvements still necessary for a great fishbowl. I thought the discussion was a little bit bland and people could have brought up more interesting topics. The one other thing that needed improvement was that the discussion on the blog went way too fast. I feel that everyone should just slow down a little bit before they type anything, and make sure they include who it is to, because that was an irritating problem.
The design fishbowl was very successful in my book. It was actually educational and interesting instead of a bunch of petty arguments. A lot of new and fascinating ideas were being bounced around and debated in a positive way. We also had a good pace of conversation, not so fast that it was hard to keep up, but not so slow that we just kept arguing the same thing and saying the same thing over and over again.
I think that the Design fishbowl went much better than the Intro fishbowl. Everyone was much more prepared with questions which kept the conversation moving. I was in the outer circle and I loved when Dr. Casey and Mr. Long participated in our blog. It was really interesting to hear ideas and thoughts from people with experience in that field. I thought there was a great variety of thoughts being discussed instead of only a few getting rephrased by everybody.
The fishbowl went really well yesterday. Everyone did really well staying on topic and keeping the conversations going. Also, it seemed like there was not one person who had a question go unanswered. I liked when the people outside of class joined the conversation because it was interesting to see a point of view from someone who we did not know and somebody who was not in high school. Mr. Long did a good job of asking almost everybody a question pertaining to their point of view and really trying to make them think. This helped me think about what was going on in my head and compare it to other people’s thoughts.
For the inner-circle perspective, I felt that the fishbowl went very well. The conversation moved at a good pace; we did not dwell on a topic for too long. People had enough questions to keep the conversation going. I thought it was amazing that no major fights broke out during the fishbowl. The Ustream and live-blogging added a whole new dimension to the experience. I would certainly do this type of fishbowl again.
The Design fishbowl, in my opinion, went very well. It was more organized than the last fishbowl; we stayed on the main topics rather than skipping between ideas. I thought it very fun that various people started blogging in.
The inner and outer circles of the Design fishbowl went really well. Many relevant and important topics were discussed. Having other people involved in the live blogging brought in other perspectives which challenged us to consider and think about other ideas and thoughts. The Design chapter from A Whole New Mind allowed for many good discussions. It really challenged us to consider and understand Daniel Pink's point of view.
Like Grace, I was not in the outer circle, so I do not know how the liveblog went. Nonetheless, I believe that because everyone brought in questions for the inner circle,the discussion was more pertinent and the discussion moved faster than normal. I believe that this fishbowl was one of the most succesful of all of them.
