There are some pretty big names involved in the conference, and the
"human centric" terminology is used pretty heavily throughout. Maybe we
were too early in trying it and setting it aside. We should watch the
outcome of the conference and see if it there is now a strong up-tick in
usage. What we're working on certainly can be used for human-centric
initiatives... it's just that it's not only for humans.

I'm sure this'll come up at our upcoming face to face. Doc Searls is one
of the speakers at MyData 2016 and he'll be at IIW, so we'll have to
pick his brain on the terminology.
