When the green bar moves onto your name, you raise your hand and look for the other person(s) in the room who've also raised their hand. That way you don't have to know people's names to find them. I've used this in workshops and it works very well; it gets people working with each other and knowing each other, then you move them onto other people for the next exercise.
