A post I made to the OSLIST today… I seek simplicity in trying to describe where and how Open Space does it’s magic. Open Space doesn’t work well for those kinds of problems because the solution is basically already known, or at least knowable. This is an emergent problem. Open Space. Open Space Do it. Learn.

What poets can tell us about ‘openness’ and ‘sharing’

Jenny Connected

have already made two posts about how these poems have given me new perspectives on emergent learning   and ‘presence’   in online environments.
