We have promised that from time to time we would reproduce in this NING some posts to the OSLIST, as there are some people in this Ning that are not (yet) in the OSLIST. We have not been able to do that often, and especialle we have not been able to translate them and reproduce them transalted in the Groups where are some people that don't understand English.
So for this time I am reproducing here a current conversation in the OSLIST. I will also make a call for participation in the Portuguese group. May others do the same in their language groups, please?
------------------ From the OSLIST
Like Suzanne, I could see the repeated and passionate invitation from Juan Luis Walker, in WOSonOS 2010, in Berlin, to organize WOSonOS in Chile this year, and, for the first time, in Latin America. I also noticed his emotion when he finally received the WOSonOS talking stick.
I had the privilege of accompanying the marvelous work that Juan Luis did in the creation and leading of the organizing team and preparing a lot of pre WOSonOS training - I hope that all his work on that will be fully recognized.
So, and also as a co-inviter, I joint my humble voice to Suzanne and Harrison. If you can, go to WOSonOS in Chile. Every WOSonOS is different, but each one is a marvelous experience. So, be prepared to be surprised.
This applies to every one of you, but I would say that for those living in Latin America this is a marvelous opportunity to get to know WOSonOS that you can't fail.
Unfortunately, for professional and health reasons, associated with the long trip flight this would imply, I will not be able to be present. I am quit unhappy with that and for not being able to meet Harrison again and to see Juan Luis opening the space in Spanish (a language that is so close to mine that I understand 90%) and for all the other experiences that WOSonOS and Chile will make possible.
But I expect to go to the next WOSonOS, in London, next year, and to go someday to Santiago, to see the fruits of WOSonOS and especially the ones that OST can add to the current pacific students movement in Chile - that reminds me of Paris, 1968, even if this version is much more controlled.
With Care and Best Whishes

Subject: [OSList] Chile in October WOSonOS...
A shared invitation to my World wide friends and colleagues,
I did not feel that I could justify the trip to Chile for the WOSonOS and yet I so wished to go. I held in my heart the vivid memory of Juan Luis Walker's invitation at the WOSonOs in Berlin last year, walking the inside of the circle extending a passionate invitation to choose Chile for 2011, a first in South America for this World gathering.
I visited the website and it was so beautifully done. Easy to navigate and the all-inclusive pricing options for lodging, food and conference were so reasonable. I could feel the same spirit of welcome that I had felt as Juan Luis chanted "Chile, Chile, Chile".
