Rod Anderson (RodMer Arts)
A very interesting concept - I hope it will spawn a lot of further cyber cafes in the future.
Rick Brown, Ph.D. (The Results Group)
I love the idea behind your site, in a much more rudimentary way, we are trying to do some similar things with ours (http://www.resultgp.com/). I'd like to sponsor but your prices are rather high for a small business. Any hope of discounts??
Jack Deal (Deal Consulting)
Interested in tacit knowledge or intellectual communities. Saw George's name at another site. I too have an office in Santa Cruz.
John Farago (ENFOLD-UK)
ENFOLD-UK is the UK branch or Chapter of the European Network for Organisational Learning Development.
It is being established as a network of networks of people interested in organisational learning and related topics. I am one of a small group of people headed by Arie de Geus who are setting up this alliance between business, academic institutions, consultants and the voluntary sector. Is there any way of seeing who else has signed the guestbook? To avoid confusion this message is not being sent from my usual e-mail address.
I am currently engaged in collecting and mapping as many organisations and networks that are working in the field of organisational learning, knowledge manangement and related topics. Can you tell me about Business Transformation Collaborative (BTC) please. Who what is it/they?
A few weeks ago, I was able to locate a page presenting the idea knowledge 'ecology'. As I have been unable to tind this page again, could you please send me the complete URL to this topic area. Thank you.
Ned Hamson (Association for Quality and Participation)Love the idea of the cafe. Will return. And when our book is published will gladly sit in at author's table.
Thank you for gathering so many resources in which I find affirmation and validation of what I am doing and being and promoting in workplaces and community. Yes!
Alex N. Pattakos, Ph.D.
Great site! For some reason, I couldn't send you a message via the Guestbook option. I look forward to visiting it for a longer period.
John Perkins (Keep the Change)
I am interested in thinking deeply about whether the social sciences have been mis-metaphored (agh) in an attempt by early practitioners to gain respectability. I am curious that in systems where the thinking of participants changes how theories can be understood and applied, that "science" fails to capture this paradox because in the "harder" sciences the thinking of particles, or oxygen or whatever is a meaningless idea.
I was prompted to think about this from an article by George Soros in the Atlantic Monthly (2/97).
Thanks for commenting.
I work in the areas of change management and knowledge management, and I was very impressed with this web site.
Mark Valentine St Leon (Edith Cowan University, Perth, West Australia)
Undertaking masters level research into intellectual capital/knowledge management in Australian organisations.
Allen Symonds (Rice University)
I find this area interesting, and diverse. I am about to finish my studies in Architecture and this is giving me lots of idea of where to point my cart at this junction of my life
Our organization is looking to develop/formalize/organize what we call a "Business Architecture" that would help us select opportunities/initiatives, manage change, manage technologies, etc. While we have ideas of how and where to begin we feel it would be best if we could learn from folks who have "been there, done that, got the trophy and the T-shirt". I'm looking for leads/referals/references that would help. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
Jennifer Timmer (Sheraton Steamboat)
As an internal organizational change consultant, I am especially interested in organizational resistance issues and self-managed teams.
Andrew Wong (Organisation Observer and Thinker)
I am much attracted with your MISSION, which echoes similar to mine in some way, as per my HomePage: http://www.geocities.com/Athens/5621
I will like to explore more your Book Cafe and hope to establish network with people of similar Vision
