All-hands brainstorm and affinity diagram


At the Fluid Engage all-hands meeting (June 22-23, 2009), we ran a design workshop to elicit realizable project ideas within the Fluid Engage space. We asked participants (combination of museum professionals, academics, designers, and developers on the FE team and board) to frame their ideas in the context of goals, interactions, and technologies.

After the meeting, the designers clustered the ideas into an affinity diagram, as seen below (download in .png or .pdf).
