By Hector Fernando Burga Typical D-Lab meetings happen on Wednesdays: The official day for the D-Lab meet-athon. During our first weeks, we quickly came up with a system that formalized our meetings process: Setting up an agenda, designating a note-taker and facilitator and keeping to schedule. It may sound simple but this took a bit of time to formalize because we had to inhabit the practice and learn by doing. The notion of coming up with formal practices that emphasize determined outcomes as well as flexible adaptation has been a hallmark of our work.
