The next part of the event was a Q & A session to the panel. It was quite a lively debate. One person asked whether it was a question of altruism or self interest in this new community? Someone else asked do people want to be part of a community? Rachel said that you can be anonymous if you wish. All the panel seemed to thing community was a good thing. Um, well its actually not always. Some communities are intrusive and negative.
Someone asked about the power of the brands in collaborative comsumption. The panel felt that perhaps the brand could be improved.
Anyhow, again this is a rough approximation of the Q & A.
