A sample of TechCrunch readers participated in a controlled experiment with video based online discussions in small groups after which they posed questions to competing experts. The briefing document was prepared by an advisory committee representing a range of views on immigration policy, and then opened to comment and revision from TechCrunch readers. Ten experts participated in the plenary sessions with the participants, including James Alexander, Ron Hira, Lisa Johnson-Firth, Norm Matloff and Atul Singh.
