What is a Jam?

"Imagine a jam session in music. You come together, bringing your instruments [and] your skills.  Someone sets up a theme, and you jam around it. You don't overanalyse it, you don't discuss it to death, you jam. You bounce your ideas off other people, and play around with what comes back...

[A design] Jam works in just the same way. But it's not music you are jamming - it's ideas."
