PS to my positive pictures expectations ...

For those of you wonderful solutionists who, after the Texellent conference of this year feel a bit nostalgic for former conferences, photosouvenirs of those are still accessible online.
Just replace the year's count in the link for the appropriate year (2003 - 2009).
The "SOLogne" in 2008 for example is accessible via this URL:

Texel goodie 2: Plenary Jaap Peters

can you please create with me the youtubevideo which inspires us to take more selfinitiative?

Workshop: Guerilla Goodness. Hit and run to change the world

Presenter: Lisa Boelaert & Herwig Deconinck

Place and time: Proeflokaal, friday 15 may 2009 at 11:45

maybe it's a good way of creating change in complex systems to do a specific act of "goodness" and hope for uncountable but useful impact. And if so: hit and trust (as Jenny inspired the change of wording from hit and run: not less intens and dynamic, i would say!)

Hans-Peter Korn has sent you a message on SOLWorld.

Hi Jon

Thank you for joining this group! It is great that now we have a person from the positive deviance community in this group!

Until now some of us (e.g. Mark McKergow ) tried to establish a closer contact to this community - and it seems, that there is no very remarkable motivation for such a contact to SF within this community....

Maybe you can post a blog in this telling more about your… Continue
