+
+* Who am I?
+** Relevant qualification:
+ - Founded Seajure, Seattle Clojure Group
+# small group, 8-12 generally
+# distilling our experiences
+
+* User groups
+** What are we trying to achieve?
+ - Social
+ - Learning (teaching?)
+
+* User groups
+** The lecture model
+ - What's going in this room here
+ - But not sustainable
+ - Not even a particularly good way of learning
+# knowledge transfer
+
+* User groups
+** The lecture model works if...
+ - Audience is sufficiently alert, caffeinated, etc
+ - Presenter can keep your attention.
+ - good jokes
+ - cat pictures
+
+* Learning
+[[./Hagelberg-SwarmCoding/athens.jpg]]
+# Classical education background: I've got opinions!
+
+* Learning by discussion
+** Socratic dialog
+** Discussion among a small group
+** Asking questions, not giving answers
+# Results in totally different depth of understanding
+# Degrees of "leading questions"
+# Leader must be attuned to the level of expertise of the group
+# Leading vs co-discovering?
+
+* Learning by shared models
+** Computer Communications
+ - by J.C.R. Licklider and Robert Taylor
+ - Creative communication
+ - distinct from simply data transfer
+\pause
+** Communication: collaborative modeling
+
+* Learning by shared models
+** Computer Communications
+** Communication: collaborative modeling
+\begin{quote}
+Any communication between people about the same thing is a common
+revelatory experience about informational models of that thing.
+\end{quote}
+# Bringing two independent models in line with each other
+\pause
+** Computers bring immediacy over distance
+** Computers remove ambiguity
+
+# Licklider was giddy about the idea of producing a network that would
+# enhance human communication via collaborative modeling. He was
+# excited at the prospect of such a system being available for
+# researchers at a mere $12/hour. We have so much more.
+
+* A REPL process as a shared model
+# Licklider was talking about engineering projects and scientific
+# research. Programmers have a huge advantage!
+** Interactive programs
+ - Able to act directly on that substance
+ - Dispensing with intermediate modeling steps
+ - (Modeling still happens in your head)
+
+* The technology
+** SSH as a shared user
+# - Distribute keys beforehand
+# - Use .local addresses if possible
+# - Disable agent forwarding
+** \texttt{tmux attach}
+** \texttt{lein new hack-project}
+** Emacs/Vim
+
+* Criteria for a hack project
+** Short, accessible
+** Contrived vs practical (harder, more interesting)
+** Start by doing a fresh project each time
+
+* Running a session
+:PROPERTIES:
+:BEAMER_envargs: [<+->]
+:END:
+** Start with everyone introducing themselves
+ - Ascertain skill levels
+** Hold a "tooling workshop" session first
+** Explain the project, goals
+** Pass around control
+** By the end, hope to have produced something
+ - Push to Github/Clojars/Heroku
+
+* Let's try it out
+** Groups of up to ten
+** Project ideas
+ - Chat log analysis
+ - Dependency games (Clojuresphere data)
+ - Group web site (members, projects listed)
+ - Games
+ - Mastermind
+ - Tic-tac-toe
