OSonOS does several things for me. Helps me see that this is a worldwide human phenomenon. Helps me explain and demonstrate that to those I would work with locally. My attendance and active online involvement demonstrates my leadership and connection and implies some understanding of this phenomenon to would-be clients/colleagues. My links to this larger whole is a model for others, I think, that holds out the possibility of humans forming and sustaining larger communities of caring and cooperation. On a practical level, OSonOS conversations form the foundation of the OSLIST and other online conversations. I think that the people who gather face-to-face each year teach the rest of us how 'normal' conversation happens among us, and allows us to do more online throughout the year because of the directness and caring that is possible when we've recently known each other face-to-face. I think those who attend in a given year, and those who make other meetings with OSLIST friends throughout the year, teach the rest of us how to talk to each other in these direct, caring, personal ways. OSonOS is also an interesting place to watch the phenomenon of the global practice of OST. As noted elsewhere, already, we seem to have moved from focus on experiments, to marketing, to training, to implementation and ongoing practice. --MichaelHerman

Also seems we are becoming a community of communities, a global world of regional worlds. This is real progress to have a thriving whole made up of thriving wholes. OST embodied in world, regions and individuals. Marvelous! --MichaelHerman
