Sundae is a playground to remix the world’s knowledge. This often involves collaborating with strangers on ideas, so please be considerate when you are engaging other users. Nurture ideas and build on them, don’t shoot them down. Isaac Asimov describes the culture we’re trying to foster well:
“First and foremost, there must be ease, relaxation, and a general sense of permissiveness. The world in general disapproves of creativity, and to be creative in public is particularly bad. Even to speculate in public is rather worrisome. The individuals must, therefore, have the feeling that the others won’t object.
If a single individual present is unsympathetic to the foolishness that would be bound to go on at such a session, the others would freeze. The unsympathetic individual may be a gold mine of information, but the harm he does will more than compensate for that. It seems necessary to me, then, that all people at a session be willing to sound foolish and listen to others sound foolish.”
