Harrison.... I am delighted that Fielding will have your treasure trove.

> There comes some point in every lifetime when it is time to clear the shelves. This is true for me, and in this case my shelves are heavily loaded with mementos from 30 Years in Open Space. Lots of videos, ancient Proceedings, papers of various sorts. I thought to move everything to the recycle bin, but then had a second thought that perhaps there was some material there that could be of interest. With the help of Barbara Bunker I contacted several universities and was delighted to find that there was more than a little interest. Operating on the principle of "First Come First Served" - I am in the process of boxing everything up, adding a few notes, and shipping it all off to Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara, CA.

My hope would be that some of their students might find useful areas for study and possibly dissertations. Under the best of circumstances, they will become entranced with the multiple unanswered questions triggered by the Open Space experience. After all, when you encounter a global phenomenon which violates virtually all the principles and practices of the conventional wisdom - it is very clear that something marvelously questionable is going on.

If you were to be an advisor to the Fielding Students, specifically what issues, questions, opportunities do you see that would be of interest and utility? Or to put it another way, _WHAT ARE THE WICKED QUESTIONS THAT MAY HAVE BUGGED YOU FOREVER – AND THAT YOU JUST WISH SOMEBODY WOULD SINK THEIR TEETH INTO?_
