Treasure Hunt - Life in open space is always a treasure hunt,
a search for gems in people and stories. This forum space is
no different. And like in open space meetings and events, there
are some things we can set up ahead of time and make explicit
on a bulletin board... and then there are the gems that must
be discovered by mucking about in the bars and hallways and gardens
and other seemingly unlikely places. What follows are a few of
the things that we can tell you up front, as you get started
in exploring this space. Beyond this, it's a treasure hunt to
find what is useful here ...AND to find or create more stuff
out in the world, that is useful, and to bring it back here in
the form of a link or a story. Please be a learner and a contributor,
in whatever ways you can!
