Email color lightSpacerTwitterSpacerLinkedinSpacerFacebook
Wednesday, Nov 9 at 7:00p Eastern Time - Convert Time Zone

The WORLD is shifting. Come back to the CIRCLE. Open more SPACE.

The 24th Annual WOSonOS is November 9-12 in Manila, Philippines. Complete details and registration for attending the Manila gathering at wosonos2016.com.

WOSonOS2016-Online will happen live during the Manila gathering, here in the Open Space Community Circle.

Join the conversations from anywhere in the world!

You'll register in advance, pay a small donation to cover costs, invite some friends – THEN bring your passion, experience and issues to share with OS colleagues from everywhere.


How to Register:

• Click the red QiqoChat Join/Sign In button in the upper right corner.

• Click the $10 Registration Button at the bottom of this page to reserve your place in the Online Circle for WOSonOS2016.

We'll provide timezone conversions, instructions on how to get connected, and other online help in the next few weeks.


Here are some experiments we will run online during the event – and how to register:

1. Chat with others during the gathering time on Day 1 (starting about 8am in Manila, on November 10th)

2. Listen and watch the Opening Circle, followed by online posting of topics you'd like to discuss with Manila and Online colleagues.

3. Four laptops in Manila for participants there to include in breakout sessions in Manila and/or butterflies to show and tell and chat about anything with Online colleagues, all day, Manila time, November 10th and 11th. If Manila bandwidth allows, more participants may open audio connections to more breakouts and butterfly chats.

4. Midnight in Manila - while Asia sleeps on their night of November 10th (between Days 1 and 2), we'll invite OS friends to gather for a few hours of connecting from everywhere on Open Space and other friendly topics anyone cares to announce.

5. Sit in the circle on the last morning, for any community conversation about hosting the next WOSonOS, in 2017.

6. Listen and watch the Closing Circle (with permission of Manila participants)

Click the Add to Calendar Button at the top of this page to reserve your place in the Online Circle for WOSonOS2016.

A Global Drop-in Birthday PARTY
Email color lightSpacerTwitterSpacerLinkedinSpacerFacebook
Wednesday, Dec 2 at 9:00p Eastern Time - Convert Time Zone

OUR dear friend and colleague, the Man in the Hat, and original Open Space storyteller, Harrison Owen, is celebrating 80 years on December 2nd. This special birthday coincides with the 30-year anniversary of Open Space Technology. Lots to cheer and celebrate!

Please join us! Bring your own cake and beverage, martini or otherwise. Enjoy each other’s company, hanging out together at the QiQoChat House – as if we were sitting on the front porch, across the kitchen table, or on a comfy sofa in the family room. And the best fun of all will be the opportunity to share special stories about Harrison or our very own memorable moments in Open Space.

Harrison will show up at some point in the day, between naps, probably the first session! He may even regale us with a tale or two. In honor of this awesome guy, we could think of no better way than for many to hang out together, in Open Space, for a big part of that special day. Everyone welcome, including bumble bees and butterflies.

Here are five suggested gathering times to shoot for, on December 2nd (December 3rd, as shown), in various timezones around the world – but you can join in any time that fits your schedule:

New York ........ 9am, 1pm, 5pm, 9pm, 1am
London/UTC... 2pm, 6pm, 10pm, --- , ---
Berlin.............. 3pm, 7pm, 11pm, --- , ---
Jerusalem....... 4pm, 8pm, 12am, ---, 8am*
Delhi............... 7:30p, 11:30p, --- , --- , 11:30a*
China/Perth.... 10pm, --- , --- , 10am*, 2pm*
Melbourne...... 1am*, --- , 9am*, 1pm*, 5pm*
(*December 3rd)

"Open Space Technology" came out of the OT (Organization Transformation symposium) closet in Goa, India in 1989. (In fact, it was named that by VS Mahesh so that Harrison could meet the press and impress them.) So there'll be a few of us "first followers" in India at a party to celebrate Harrison’s 80th in Indian Standard Time! We'll hope to greet Harrison as he drinks his birthday morning coffee!

If you know what time you will be there, feel free to let others know via the OSlist. Half the fun will be running into each other. And yes, please invite all your open space friends, colleagues and friends. We’ve got lots of room for everyone.

What fun it will be to gather virtually and globally in this special face-to-face way at the QiQoChat House! We can’t wait to see and hear all of us together!
