Opening space in Melbourne, and the fifth principle

Chris Corrigan

I’ve just opened space at a conference here with Viv McWaters, Geoff Brown, Anne Pattillo and Johnnie Moore.

And so as way of honouring Brian in our own little way today we took the unprecedented step of officially adding a fifth principle to the Open Space canon. Tags: Open Space

Social Reporter

Back in 2004 I did have some discussion with staff about how blogging might be useful as part of their communications and work with groups … but the open style didn’t appeal. My advice was simple - open up, start blogging back.

MirandaNet: Social Networking trivial or mind expanding?

Community Capers

Some members act as e-facilitators or braiders who help to shape the argument, provide interim summaries and change the direction of the discussion (Preston, 2002; Preston & Holmes, 2002; Cuthell, 2005). The exchange of information is two way, as it flows from the wealthy to the less well resourced and back again (Resta, 2002, p. 2002). Holmes (2002). 2002). Buckingham: Open University Press. 2002).
