How to Move Forward

We each wrote down an idea on a notecard. Then we all stood up in an unorganized mass. On a signal we started a series of exchanges: Each of us would mill around and periodically exchange the card in our hands with the one in someone else's. After a while, a second signal would sound and we would pair up with a nearby person. Each pair would have a total of 10 points to allocate between the two cards we held. We did this for about 20 minutes, then we totalled the scores. For much of the rest of the day we discussed the results. Here are the ideas and the scores.
