Open Space Friends Everywhere,
The World is Shifting. Come Back to the Circle. Open More Space!
If you can find your way to Manila on November 9-12, by all means, do it. If
you can't, then joining from your laptop or phone via the Open Space Community
Circle at openspace.qiqochat.com is the next best thing to being there!
We're opening more space. We have a number of online breakout spaces connected
to Manila, plus an online bar, kitchen, porch, pool and newsroom.
We will run a number of experiments during the Manila gathering, all aimed at
supporting more connections among open space friends everywhere. Be prepared
to be surprised!
Here's what we have imagined so far:
* Opening in Manila - we'll open a connection to the main meeting space
in Manila so you can see and hear the opening circle and posting of topics.
* Breakout/Butterfly Connections - we'll have four (plus or minus)
laptops connected throughout the day so people in Manila can bring distant
friends along to breakout sessions, or just have butterfly conversations.
* Online Breakouts/Butterflies - there are spaces for online participants
to post or flutter into conversations with other online participants.
* ** Midnight in Manila ** will happen exactly when the name says it
will. Between Days 1 and 2, while Manila participants are sleeping, friends
from many other timezones will be wide awake and invited to gather for a couple
of hours of meeting and learning together.
* Next Year's WOSonOS site selection - for the first time, open space
friends tuning in from anywhere can be a part of the conversation about where
to gather next. Maybe we'll keep the connection open for the Closing Circle as
well, but that will be up to participants in Manila.
Lucas has made many improvements in the QiqoChat platform since we met there a
year ago for the Virtual OSonOS, including a switch to Zoom for the audio/video
connections. Suzanne has made a great video that we'll share with you soon.
Registration is required and is open now: visit OpenSpace.QiqoChat.com. The
cost is $10 for anyone not participating onsite in Manila, to cover the
You can send questions and comments to me directly or post them to the list
here, so we can answer them for everyone. The whole experiment will emerge and
evolve as more and more people choose to join us.
What we're offering is a space, a platform, for you to learn and contribute and
create and connect and discover... What happens will be totally determined by
who shows up – sound familiar? We'll work out the details as we go along...
Please join us – and share this with friends and colleagues, especially on the
various OS facebook groups!
