[OSList] Less that Open Space

Suzanne said -"I have also seen participants who shared that they were at an
Open Space event before and that it looked nothing like the one they may
have just experienced now."


The sad tale of OS that wasn't. We've all heard it before, and doubtless
there are dozens more that we will never know about. And it is too bad - but
I sincerely doubt that there is a single thing to be done about it, save
making sure that whenever we open space everybody gets the whole enchilada.
No amount of training, pleading, legislation, certification, authorizing,
monitoring, mentoring - will do a bloody bit of good, I think. Somebody is
always going to look for a "better" way - a little addition, an added
technique, a subtle control - whatever. And maybe they will find it, God
love'em. In the meantime, and with all charity I have to admit - I can't be
bothered. At the end of the day Open Space is going to be just fine. Not
because we have protected it but simply because it works all by itself, as
it has for millennia.


Gone Fishing.
