Dear Gabriela,
Your words and sensitivity have also impressed me. 
I really wish Open Spacers aound the world including myself move on to
applying wikipedia-vos/os combination to maximize online and offline synergy
from hightened awareness, focus yet allowing diversity to tackle innocent
human sufferings such as hunger, warfare, terror, global warming,.. 
Going strong in virtual reality games, younger generations (teens, 20s,
early 30s) of (South) Korea seems to be one of the fastest movers to the
world of virtual reality. And that's the reason why I am so keenly intersted
in localization of VOS for those generations.
My feelowopen spacers here would be willing to help your team in creating
Korean user interface, user guide, and online help as much as possible, so
please let us know when you are ready. 
I would trust that the software has adopted uicode system to allow
searchability across language barriers. Can users enter Korean characters
for report generation and also perform search in Korean?
If Korean language is not supported yet, how are you going to proceed with
your friend and supppters?
The fact is I haven't tried VOS yet, I just trust my fellow open spacer, you
and your team, and that it would be more than fantastic! ^^ Anyhow, I'd like
to try VOS please let me know your license conditions for trying v. 1.0 and
v. 2.0 (in USD or Euro) for different audiences.
Love and Peace,

Dear Park, I am deeply touched by your words on many reasons.
You have described so beautifully the vision I had in 1999. Yes, it was an
unbelievable thrilling momentum, as I saw so clearly how the software
(bouquet of ingredients, structure, process and quality criteria) has to be
realized and how important a virtually-led Real-Time OpenSpace-Online
Meeting Tool will become one day for so many organizations, interest groups
and change facilitators around the globe. Thank you very much for your warm
words - this is doing good to my soul :) Especially because my small team
and I were so busy with developing the second software edition during the
last two years. Very soon the hard and long work on the new software will be
completed. I look very much forward to share more about this achievement
I am also touched by the timing of your question, because this summer or
latest this fall I want to start together with wonderful friends and
supporters a special OpenSpace-Online Initiative. With this project we want
to include also financial sponsors (for the very first time). The initiative
will have to do also with the middle-term goal to enable the use of our
English software (version 2.0) with almost all world languages and with the
additional goal to create completely translated software versions for many
other languages later. I have this dream since so many years, therefore our
software was and is developed in a way that it will allow such technical
upgrading. Until then, the software can be used (like it was during the last
5 years) around the globe by just choosing one of 16 different computer
language-settings. As soon as the initiative will have a good first basis to
start I will be very happy to share more information with all of you. I
trust, that many people and financial supporters will love this initiative.
Park, thank you so much for sharing your dreams! I deeply appreciate your
great idea and passion. I have put your name and your country with much joy
on our "friends and supporters list". I wish you much joy and success in
holding space for Open Space in Korea and beyond!
Love & Peace from Berlin,

Hi Gabriela,

I am an Open Spacer in Korea, the only country divided into North and South 

I trust that your Virtual Open Space software will evolve into a planetary 
jewel that would save humankind from many formidable dillemmas, challenges, 
and disasters such as global warming, hunger, terror, and so on by helping 
people of many, many organizations open their space of understanding and 

I'd like thank you for crafting the inspirational masterpiece and I'd like 
to discuss with you on localizing the interface of VOS for Korean audience.

I'd like to know things involved to pursue this idea.

So thrilling it is just to imagine a time where people of the world 
discussing and planning actions using VOS as the tool that facilitate 
realization of the dream. 

I want to be the first one who makes VOS available in local language 
(Aisian languages)to proliferate use of the tool.

I would be looking forward to receiving your reply and also like to spark 
off dialogs on this matter.

As virtual space will be becoming rutine experience, VOS will become more 
and more important, so is the need for local language VOS.

Looking forward to hearing from you and others who feel passion and 

Love and Peace,
