        A few alternative questions

        how do you respond to those (eg thousands in organisational transformation
        networks begun around DC in the early 1980s) who say that open space is the
        fittest gateway for people who communally do and flow large scale change
        projects http:///project30000.blogspot.com

        I follow my dad's belief in storytelling exercised as The Economist's most
        prolific writer in The Economist- throw up future possible concepts and see
        which communities grab hold of them and communalise open source projects
        around them. My father ended his career at the Economist with a trilogy on
        Entrepreneurial Revolution

        This work (the 3rd part I co-authored since I had begun my career in the UK's
        national development project experiemnting with computer assisted learning
        networks 1973 on) mapped out how big organsiation innovation is a very narrow
        pathway of patented processes- anyone who has ever read my father's one pager
        on the years it took Pilkington to invent glass plate must fall around with
        laughter at such corpoarte innovation processes agonies and ectasies

        that more important than just remembering that 99% of major inventions in
        history were started by small people groups (gravitaing around a chnagemaker
        with a litetime passion to change society) is relentless questioning of the 2
        revolutionary challenges moving forward from 1980

        intrepareneurial (service economy - invests in people not machines) pre 1980s
        companies and all who wrote up tyheir startegies in the 1980s are systemically
        conflicted with this type of innovation, as are today's accounting monopoly
        (not you book people in as cost to cut and such maths destroys any compound
        service innovation when it monipolises top down goverance)

        the web, which involves all of us between 1984-2024 in 7 collaboration waves
        worldwide through each locality; global corporate power aided and abetted by
        non-community rising .govs is the perfect storyline for scripts to hell not
        webbing 2 million gl,obal villages around sustainable exponentials - so where
        do we find the scrips that will enable us all to simultaneously move up a
        system to when distance separated apartheids all over the world? the search
        and meat-learning game is on and defines whether childen will see a 22nd
        century http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html#Anchor-Changin-27687

        Kotter's seems to me to storytell for penguins in suits in ways that do not
        include small voices or demand transparency of media- see our 4 hemisphere
        model at http://clubofdelhi.blogspot.com and if I err, tell me how Kotter ever
        travels around its storytelling maps
