i also think that posting a topic, in any form (OST, listserv, forum,
bulletin board, in converstation, etc.) is a way of inviting curiosity and
care. by focussing the attention and inviting expanssion/exploration with
others, one is inviting others to join in the momentum of bringing a topic
out into action... a chance to expand upon the notion through curiosity and
care. when passion accompanies accepting the invitation, that's when a
collective assumption of responsibility seems to be most powerful. feels
silly to be saying this to this audience...as i'm just describing OST.

"Passion to responsibility is more of a glide than a phase shift."

chris, will you say more about that?
