San Francisco, CA, USA
The annual world Open Space on Open Space is upon us, and I am here with the whole family in San Francisco in anticipation of two and half days of meeting with friends old and new. Tonight Harrison Owen was here making a brief appearance to launch the 3rd Edition of the Open Space Technology User’s Guide, which has been updated with several stories and tweaks to the process that the community has evolved since the last edition, published in the 1990s. It was good to see Harrison again, although ever so briefly, as he was off to perfrom the wedding ceremony for his daughter this coming weekend, so he won’t be with us.
A nice evening reception though down at Fort Mason on the waterfront. Several bloggers are here this year, so I expect to see stuff posted from Viv McWaters, Jeff Aitken, Christy Lee Engle, Doug Germann and Kaliya Hamlin among others. Hopefully we’ll have some connectivity in the conference site and I’ll be able to post the odd reflection or two.
In the meantime, we’ve been here for a few days already, visiting Alcatraz, downtown and around the waterfront. I have some photos up at the flickr site, won’t be labeled for a while though.
