*** I think it is crucial to have feedback from onsite participants on what they felt in relation with the online participation. But only from a personal reflection I will add bellow three new suggestions. -- ArturSilva (Aug, 30)

***I find myself thinking about the use of the Internet in maintaining connections…between individuals and communities of all types and sizes. Reflection upon my experience as an online participant at OsonOS? arose as an example. It seems that a new and unique opportunity to maintain a varying degree of involvement in a community is being made available …wrapped complete with a real time option (and can I even say bounded by passion and responsibility?).

Often I find my mind wandering to a place outside of my physical surroundings, a thought of a person, event, or far-away-land slips in. When I notice it, I like to spend some time “visiting” in that space. When events that I would like to participate in are occurring, I often send part of myself to “visit.”

I notice how many choices were made available regarding the extent to which one is invited to participate in OsonOS?. I have the invitation to physically move my body to Swenmark and the many choices that follow there. I also have the invitation to stay at my house and participate online. Should I choose to be physically absent, I still have the ability to be involved for as many or as few moments as I would like. For myself, I know that while the extent to which I communicate…make myself visible…may vary, my energy is just as present as if I were in the room (though in a very different way).

Previous conferences I might have just “visited” in the way mentioned above. However, with this conference I had the opportunity to check-in in a whole different manner.
I wonder about the onsite participants and what it was like for them to feel online participants adding to the occasion. In what ways was that addition of attention, intention, passion, ????? experienced? -- AshleyCooper
