Dear Robyn and Jeff and Bhav and you others,

when topics are chosen by the facilitator there are no issues from the 
participants. Without issues, no need to meet.
As os facilitator I am deeply attached to doing nothing so that I can be 
fully present and at the same time invisable.

I enjoy myself with these kinds of exchanges on various approaches and 
the meaning and weight of "words"... and have no experience with Warm 
Data Lab...

Have a great day wherever you are
Greetings from Berlin
