Don’t call it Open Space  if it’s not Open space!!

Another thing.. I visited my first ”Bar camp” a week ago. Oh my how frustrated I was with the control! Imagine that we had to stand up and  tell our name and two topic that we would like to talk about (without any obligation to bring them up). After that the ones who wanted to raise a topic - stod up and read what s/he wanted to talk about in the 45 min breakout sessions. Then we were asked to raise our hands if we thought that topic was a good idea  - and not if it’ wasn’t… Just imagine standing up front of all participants with a topic and no one raised their hand…!
Nothing was said about how to collect the recordings so there was a big confusion about that. Every breakout session was 45 min and when the time was out - the ”facilitator” came in the different rooms and announced that the time was over…
And of course no circles , just tables. Can you imagine me as being an Open Space ”fundamentalist” being oh so much frustrated…
Oh my - what an interesting experience …
