Thanks Lisa. Looks like an interesting site. I am looking for a good facilitator for an OST meeting I am holding in February in DC for the US Department of Ed. I would like to find someone who has education experience as well as facilitating a meeting for a first-time government agency. They are excited and apprehensive about the format. It will be a one day OST with a group of ED grantees. Any recommendations on someone to help out? Thanks and I look forward to exploring your site. Kay
Thanks so much for the welcome, Lisa. Have tried pitching OS to a client to have them use it as a way to help bring their organization into the digital age, serve its customers better, etc. Was interesting to see how much of a process it was to convince them — and they're still 'thinking' about the format. :-/
Thank you for the welcome Lisa, I recently began reading Owen's book. I am looking forward to experiencing more and learning as I go. Thanks for information about the upcoming conference. I will look into it.
Thank you Lisa for the welcome. I've recently completed some Art of Hosting Training and did some Open Space training a few years ago. I have downloaded Harrison Owen's book from Amazon and am really looking forward to learning more and to using this in my work. Thanks. Tracey.
Thank you, Lisa, for the warm welcome. Agree, nothing beats F2F. On the other hand, all you need for business is sight and sound, because touch and smell rarely matter in business. Let me get my bearings in this forum as well.
Thank you, Lisa! My sister lives in SF and I would love to attend a workshop so I will keep this in mind. I have not seen any listings for workshops in Oregon or Washington; let me know if you are aware of any up here.
Tere Lisa! 'Tere' is a short version fro welcome in Estonian :) Thank you for your message and I'll definitely pass your regards to Mikk! In fact he referred me here. We started together the OS in Estonia by inviting Harrison Owen to Estonia in February 2003. So it will be 10 years anniversary next year.
Thank you Lisa!, I am glad about your welcome message. I am wondering who else may have Moderator (or other) authority in this place. If there are others who help you in Admin tasks etc, or if there are co-founders etc, please notify me. I am eager to get oriented, hear a story about this space, about the people, places and things, etc.
Un saludo, querida Lisa. Agradezco tus palabras de bienvenida y la posibilidad de formar parte de esta comunidad abriendo también mis espacios internos al intercambio y la construcción colectiva de conocimientos. Un abrazo. Nora
first I would like to apologize for not having responded to your warm welcome from last year's November (blushing). I have not been on this site for quite a while. Now after having had the wonderful experience with OST and its woderful inhabitants at OSLEX 2011 in Cagliari, Italy alst week I felt a need to immediately come back and communicat some more. I am just reading Harrison's book .. A User's Guide, the one you recommended and I love it. He has been at Cagliari as well and what a person!
So I do hope to be a bit more in touch in the future with you and you all.
