I very much liked the table on learning 1.0 vs 2.0 on this blog. (Couldn't find the name of the author on the page.)

You probably have seen the famous last lecture video of prof. Randy Pausch. It really was his last lecture as he was diagnosed with cancer. If you have never watched it, I encourage you to do so. (Why are the brick walls really there? - If you screw up and nobody bothers to tell you any more, that's when you are in a bad place - etc) .
I was wondering how you can bring a concept of giving your so-called last lecture to the workplace. Giving your last speech gives you the freedom to throw away all what doesn't matter and speak from the heart on what you find is most worthwhile. Could we have a 'last meeting' for people leaving the company? I bet they'd have interesting things to say, and good advice to give. Or a 'last email' to the company when you move on? Would it work?

A few days ago I attended an event on Generation Y, organized by my alumni association. As an experiment, they had invited people from a company called citylive with a cool technology for conferences. You see two screens above the speaker's head: one is ye old powerpoint (ok, shown via SlideShare instead of MS Office, but still a presentation), and the other screen shows live comments from the audience and answers to questions from the panel or speaker to that audience. The audience can react via an SMS or a mobile application. It really makes the whole presentation thing two-ways, interactive and a lot more fun. Oh, by the way, the comments are filtered by a moderator :-) . People are still people.
