This is a great idea. I have some minimal comments:
1) It was amazing that this was the first conference for me where the
communication by itself was transdisciplinary. I mean, the own
lectures/talks uses different communication skils and techniques just
because different disciplines have different languajes and signs.
(Phylosophy = reading with voice entonation; Ciencie = visual schemes with
very direct languaje; Arts: More interactive talks with videos). For me, at
the firs sight, i understood as "errors", beacuse i´m used to see only one
tipe of talk, but i understanded that each discipline have its own tools,
and just for this needs different communication strategies. So, in
conclusion, this conference, for me, was mediated by another discipline,
which is communication. This is obvious, but if we push it into explicit
discurse i think we can stablish more rigorous and powerfull exchanges.
2) For me it was surprising that the idea of city was extremly criticied by
the local representants. In fact, some of them said that all the cities
have the same characteristics. Afterwards i was walking thorugh Bilbao, and
i just get amazed from this city. So, for sure i understand that research
must be on the avantgarde of the discipline, but, as Roger said in one
round table, always is possible to choose a negative or positive
interpretation. I found Bilbao, as many other cities, as an space for
chances (of course always reality is complex and difficult), but even with
this is amazing the energy, the culture and the people doing things. So, i
think this field of interaction must recover this sense of participation.
Which is easy to say, and extremly difficult to do it.
