Couldn’t tell it better. It’s real. It’s a joke. Both are true. Thanks Jeff.

Harrison will likely tell the story (or tell the likely story...)

I learned OS before the T was added in a widespread way. It's kind of a winking joke, on one hand (being so low-tech) - added to impress the hard-nosed business journalists at an early OS conference in India. 

On the other hand, over the years it's grown into a useful term - even if sometimes Open Space or Open Space Process are still used too. 

Process and knowledge creation for the win, exactly.


Just a thought about the “technology” bit. Apologies if this has been covered before. 

Does the use of technology refer to definitions of technology as process and knowledge creation?


Best Karl

Subject: [OSList] A Gift from Phelim


One of the deep spirits I met in the space that seems to open all by itself whenever good people with good minds and great hearts assemble to consider what they really care about is Phelim McDermott. For many people he is simply a world famous director with credits for operas at the Met in New York, a Broadway show --- and some of the very best improve theatre in London . But more than that he is somebody who really cares, and who can share that caring in compelling ways.  I am sure you will see what I mean if you click on….  https://vimeo.com/75226991
