How can one improvise (together) in a virtual world, using electronic connections? How can we bring the benefits of interactivity into this medium, which is often an isolating medium?

Izzy Gesell and I have been offered the opportunity to do a webinar for our upcoming joint workshop “Change your story Change your world”. As you may know, a webinar involves ringing in and joining in on, essentially, a very large conference call. This webinar can have anywhere between 100–250 callers. The challenge has been to design an interactive program with people we can’t see and we don’t even know how many people there are there. Waiting to join in. Or just sitting listening. The challenge is in the design of trying to create something in almost a brand new medium, providing interactivity and engagement, when so much of our work is about working with people in the same room. The same time and space.
The challenge then is how to create an interactive personal experience in a virtual medium like the webinar. How do we get people to feel connected and interactive when they can’t see each other or respond to each other in visual or usual real-time ways? Have you experienced this challenge?
