Don't be silly. Agenda's are not for specifics. They're for "general subjects." When subject matter is scattered, the meeting is too--to some degree like last years meeting (as wonderful as it was). This is the biggest tweak amongst every person I talked to who attended (including the person who inspired it...). When there's an agenda--ideas that flow ON THAT SUBJECT tend to be more focused and much more helpful--that's obvious I know, so I don't know why some people are so turned off by it. Why not keep the agenda loose, but roughly structured in large blocks of ideas? It won't stop the cross pollanization of ideas in any way. The least successful art/films/animation/stories are stories without boundaries. Setting the boundaries doesn't mean you can't go beyond them, but it sets up a general framework and provides guideposts to judge our progress.
