About the NEO Excellence Roundtable: an ad hoc group of people who care about Northeast Ohio are collaborating to make
NEO the world leader in social computing and openly
strategizing on how NEO as a region may achieve world-class status -
we are establishing benchmarks for success and taking action in pursuit
of measurable outcomes. Current pursuits include bridging the
digital divide in East Cleveland, deploying the optimal social
network for Northeast Ohio, and expanding understanding of the issues surrounding Whiskey Island.
In the interest of supporting open collaboration, we've established a virtual Community Of Interest Link (COIL) called NEO Excellence - please visit at http://neoexcellence.realinks.us. To access the community, you must
create an account using the link found at the home page - or, if you
have an account at another REALinks site... like here at REALNEO... you may log-in with your
username from that site, followed by @ that site's URL (e.g. your username [at] realneo [dot] us), and then enter your password from that site.
Beyond pursuing virtual collaboration, we're nurturing open source face to face visioning and so have
storied tradition of roundtable lunches at the City Club, now being held each
Tuesday between 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM, where non-hierarchical area innovation champions are
breaking bread and brainstorming. The group is called the NEO Excellence
Roundtable and is open to all.
The Excellence Roundtable format is casual
and conversational - to join us for lunch, please contact coordinator Norm Roulet at
norm [at] realinks [dot] org. Each attendee is expected to pay for their own buffet lunch, which is $13 and always excellent.
