Starting off the Q&A

Harrison, I have been pleased to see how OST is being documented online --
http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/openspacetechnology -- and inspiring some bold technical innovations -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarCamp

Question - Do you see ways of moving beyond Open Space as an event and on to the productive stuff that happens when the space is open 24X7?

ost 2.0

Post by planeta »

I have only had the pleasure of experiencing a real OST session once, but the impact was monumental. It is interesting to see how many of the Web 2.0 developers are also inspired. Examples include Barcamps -- http://planeta.wikispaces.com/barcamp -- and a few YouTube videos

My questions:

How comfortable are you with the web-based technology?

Do you have any suggestions for those who wish to apply Open Space principles online?

Comfort with "online?" Sure! After all the InterNet is the largest Open Space going. So it is a perfect match. And some folks have gone the next distance. Gabriela Ender (Berlin) has done a marvelous piece of piece of onine sofware that REALLY opens space.

audio files

Post by planeta »

Harrison, I was trying to listen to the Practice of Peace MP3s on the Human System Dynamics website, but the link no longer works. Can you direct us to where we might be able to listen to the audio files? If there are other options or videos (!), let us know.

Open Space Estonia

Post by planeta »

I am in conversations with colleagues in Estonia about an upcoming ecotourism conference. Would it be possible, I asked, if the event included some Open Space events?

It just might happen! Aivar directed me to this slideshow of Open Space in practice
