Half-way to this?

To our good friends–

Open Space is a half-way technology. So says Harrison Owen. Half-way to what?

Open Space Technology, The World Café, and the dozens of other meeting formats that have been appearing among humans the last few decades are harbingers of a growing shoot. The growing edge is to see what can be done to improve humanity in a fundamental way. The direction is toward collaboration, or more precisely toward growing us from the fact that there is something larger afoot. That something larger suggests that we are an intricate interwoven pulsating and throbbing one. Or can be.

So we are half-way, perhaps, to developing technologies and sciences that bring us together, foster and grow from conflict, increase diversity and passion, and ensure that each generation following ours is more human than the one before it.
