Dropping Knowledge

This is a cool concept:

"On September 9, 2006, 112 of the world's most compelling thinkers, artists, writers, scientists, social entrepreneurs, philosophers and humanitarians from around the world will come together in Berlin, Germany, as guests of dropping knowledge.

Seated around the worlds largest table in historic Bebelplatz square, these inspiring individuals, renowned for their lasting creative or social contribution, will engage with 100 questions out of the thousands donated to dropping knowledge by the international public. Using dropping knowledge's question-rating system, the public identified 500 questions as those most likely to initiate open dialog on a social topic of most relevance to them. ... Re-fitted with 112 flat-screen monitors, the original wooden round-table will live on as a traveling exhibition, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in a real-time re-creation of the Table of Free Voices event."

YouTube has a ton of questions that you can check out...not sure if people are posting these themselves, if some are official...or what the deal is. Here is one for you.

sounds cool, but what is the purpose? Seems like nothing more than a media stunt.
Whata re the positives?
