Emily Horn and Vincent Horn are meditation teachers and partners in running the Buddhist Geeks organization. In the first part of this special series, Emily and Vincent describe the growth of Buddhist Geeks from a podcast to a conference to a community. They share some of the design principles that have shaped earlier projects and continue to shape their thinking today. And finally they do a live post-mortem analysis of their last project, the Buddhist Geeks Community. In the process they explore the way that Buddhism is changing in the 21st century--with such a collision of perspectives--and how Buddhist Geeks is a small reflection of that cultural process.
This is part one of a two part series.
