The Nines

For those of you who haven't heard about it, there is a live event taking place right now called The Nines. It's a conversation sponsored by Leadership Network and Catalyst, and it features nine minute blurbs from some top leaders and thinkers in the evangelical emerging movement. It's happening today, on 9/9/09. It's a really creative event, with some really amazing speakers. It was the #1 trending topic on Twitter for a while this morning, and all the extroverts are out in force, "processing" through typing.

But I just can't watch it. Rapid fire bursts of disparate information, with no time to process in between, just destroys my introverted brain. I think if I watched 3 in a row my head would implode. And I can't help but think that this event is really representative of a bias towards extroverted ways of thinking and acting that pervades much of evangelicalism today.

The good news is that you will be able to watch it later, one at a time, at your leisure. That is what I will be doing.
