      Brief response.

      I liked the debate format - especially in the first session when it was tightly timed.
      Having the tickets was an interesting idea too - but a bit confusing at first.

      It was all thought provoking.

      Obviously, as it was a first go there are  organisational details that could be tightened up for another time (examples that spring first to mind are a list of delegates, and a timetable on display outside the session room) but in general it was a refreshing and stimulating approach.

      It was also an ambitious link across various cultures. Afterwards I realised that I had failed to take advantage of the opportunity to meet the COMMINIA workshop people who were "outside Misnciu Sodas". I am not sure how that happened - I guess I was too concerned to meet people I already knew (or e-knew) and to meet Andrius' Lithuanian people.

      I regret that lost opportunity, but don't quite know how it might have been easier.

      Perhaps more definite breaks for coffee and lunch would have aided informal networking - but then the programme was very tight, and interesting, there was a lot to fit in. It is always hard to choose how to  structure such things.

      Thank you to all participants of our COMMUNIA workshop in Vilnius,
      Lithuania on March, 31, 2008.

      I have put up the workshop papers at our Ethical Public Domain website:
      http://ethicalpublicdomain.ning.com/forum/topic/show?id=2028014%3ATopic%3A2493
      We have also started putting up video:
      http://www.internetinetv.lt/Naujienos/Jaunimotema/
      and we will put up more sessions.

      And we welcome further comments. And further debates! I am interested
      to continue online with old and new topics. If there is interest, I
      think we could find a way to organize more such debates in Lithuania or
      elsewhere in the world, perhaps in COMMUNIA, but not necessarily.
      Perhaps the format could catch on, in general.

      I also appreciate general thoughts about the workshop and the various
      topics.

      Thank you!

      Andrius
