Hi, Flemming. Nice to see these pop up here. I was the "exec-in-residence last Nove '03 at the Banff Centre for Leadership and the Arts (Banff Alberta), and the week long program used these principles as the contextual frame for the program.

In case you're interested, here's a bit I blogged on the the structure/content of the week-long program.

to see your use of the word -pop up- in these blogs of hystorical significance regarding the beginnings of new civilisations.
I don't know wat's wrong with me lately but i been perceiving some newslogs and comments, as not unlike pop-up ads, especially the one's concerning the middle east situations. Iam popping them off as fast as they are popping up. It almost seems like there is a desparation for branding ones unique or even less than unique ideas while they last. Now, i mainly enjoy spanish languge logs, becase they do not upset me the slightest. I don't understand a word.
I also think they may come useful, since i am thinking of shifting my not too significant weight ower to Mexico way.
If i do so i will change my name to Zistvan. I want to go down in the annals of history as Zistvan the Zenpatista. How is that for unique.
