And here is where Open Space is definitely a "each to his/her own" sort of
thing. The 1 1/2 hour time slots work well for me in anything over ad day long
Open Space. Since I won't do anything less than a day -- hour and on half is
normative in my book. Can it be less? Of course... and when the group is small
with little travel required between meeting spaces ... doubtless it will work.
But optimal "cooking time" --  1 1/2 hours.
