What happens if you fill a room with highly educated and intellectually curious people? Does the combined IQ coefficient cancel itself out or does it elevate the discussions to a higher level?

The Hilton Head Institute held their second annual forum since it was founded by a handful of visionaries and early adapters. The event offered “brain candy” of the highest quality. Usually one would have to travel to N.Y.C or Aspen in order to get the same amount of intellectual input, but all a local attendee had to do is to convene at the Westin, sit down, listen and participate.
