Imagine applying #flipclass principles to meetings as a whole. Most meetings, even decent ones (ha!) are a series of isolated info.dump with hesitant discussion as feelings are spared and people aren't really sure how others will react.
After the meeting, there is a flurry of one on one discussion, negotiation, opinion polling and ultimately a decision is made. In the worst of environments, this is made official at another meeting (in the absolute worst environments, the decision is "arrived at" during the second meeting -- nudge, wink.
#flipclass theory would seem to argue that the info.dump and initial position setting could be done asynchronously and that the negotiation, argumentation, and decision making would be better placed in-meeting.
