I think it's all good -- and the website is a lot of fun. I liked the home made videos.

My daughter-in-law's question (I don't know if she sent it in) was something like the following, though I've built upon her comments: "How many of you have children? Who is taking care of them? What can be done to better support the caregivers?"

I understand the bias here against ‘experts’… but most of the ‘experts’ I have met are fully aware of their own lack of ability to answer all questions and would only choose to call themselves an expert in a certain area/field of living… and.. I do not see this word being used here… I also see that this is yet another forum that is looking for input from a wide variety and cross section of people from all countries and areas of ‘expertise’. Perhaps if you can look beyond a form that is not of your choosing you could find some value here?

Thanks to my increasing myopia (doubtless due to sins past and present) I did in fact miss the URL. small print! is the root of all evil!! But I love you Funda!!!



And Michael -- you captured my feeling exactly when it come to events like this. Doubtless it will be a marvelous show, but as an advance of real knowledge, and more importantly the application of that knowledge, I rather think it will come up short. The "Expert Syndrome" one more time. Old joke about the definition of "expert" -- "a has been under pressure." Some truth there, I think.

Dear list,
yesterday, I did send the note below to ho who had not discovered the
link and entered my esteemed opinion on this project.
Its in the local Berlin paper again today with a long report on how they
are creating two setups, one indoor for rain and one outdoor for sunny
weather...its quite a huge table coated with a very fancy and expensive material that can also be written on...they have already approached the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest round table ever...and I
wouldnt be surprised if they cut it up in pieces and auction it off as
they did with other local objects like the Berlin Wall....and, of
course, there is going to be a video where you can see all of them
simultaneously answering questions...

To me this is a good example for the paradigm "Experts solve Problems"
(Taylor, Scientific management)which dominated the art between 1900 and 1950, followed by a phase of "Everybody solves Problems" (Group Problem
Solving, Lewin etc.) which in recent years, under the influence of
Systems Thinking, has been changing since 1965 into "Experts improve
whole systems" and, more recently, with the development of approaches
such as Open Space, Future Search, etc., into "Everybody improves whole
systems".
I dont think that an approach long shown to be useless for the
challenges we are facing now improves through technology that makes it
available instantaneously, worldwide...
Still, its a fascinating show that definitely is marketed in an
effective mode...
So, for me its back to practicing Open Space Technology!
Greetings from Berlin

click on the link she supplied, its a little hard to see for old men like me
it was in the local Berlin paper today and I consider it to be a
fabulous piece of bullshit,
especially since they definitely forgot to include THIS
great mind
Tables have been out for some time...
