fantastic melanie you are wonderful

I would like to understand a bit more about the whole series of 8 summits to 2015 as I too am trying to help Dr Yunus "plant" 7 summits but round focal areas such as health, mobile, education; and at any frequency that micro and collaboration can generate

if you have anything on file, could you just attach it; I am not quite sure where to best read up on how you and your core colaborators got onto the fantastic joiurney you are now core to

yesterday while at one conference peter and I bumped into another hosted by folk at -it seemed to be 1000 bipartisan under 30s writing up what policy that obama has already mentioned they want him to action first;

main leaflet:

embrace millennium goals

double us foreign assiatnce to $50 bn

strengthen global health infrastructire by 2020 by training health professinals in poor countries

invest at elast 2 bn in global education fund

modernise foreign assistance policies, tools, operations

expland personnel in foreign service, and te epace corps

As a misplaced Scot which can have sme advantages in playing the fool that's up for PM Brown's Age of No Frontiers, I dont really understand america channels of people power; if anyone thinks there is a better one to try and map please say otherwise I will try and start undrerstanding the DC office of this one since they seemed fun, open , ready to try anything to get back to for and by the people

can open space design a collaboration around the world?

Dear Harrison How are you doing?

Last week I was at an exciting open space event in san francisco facilitated by Jain Ballard who sends his regards and convened by a deep spirit Melanie St James cheered on by founders of the electronic frontier foundation and other collaborative networkers. In effect it was about planning 7 years of open spaces and summits to unite any open part of california in millennium goals being fulfiled by 2015. It would be fascinating to know if any other region of open space networks is either planning to do something similar or wants to jump on board with california. Is there a way to survey that? bestchris macrae 301 881 1655
