This is story of an un-keynote that began in discussion with @BillHD.

The conceit was this: Could we create an un-keynote experience in which members of the community would be encouraged to explore the question: Is Reading Writing?

This was the design: Tweets were pre-written with images of slides that presented content about my enhanced digital book, Socratic and Platonic Politics: Practicing a Politics of Reading. The keynote began with the tweets so those gathered with invited to read and respond to the slides. The tweets were delivered via Buffer, and we use LiveTweetApp to moderate the content to the screens around the room.

This Storify captures some of the dynamics and reactions of what unfolded.
