New toys

We now have access to our own collaborative writing platform at notes.theopenorganization.org. @Bryan will give an overview.

Roster online

A more easily accessible version of our community roster is now online at theopenorganization.org/roster. Basic, simple, effective for now!

Proposed discussions


@ronmcfarl to lead a discussion of whether we’d like to consider create icons for each of the principles in the Open Organization Definition. These would express the essence of each principle in a single image or figure. These can be useful, for example, in our presentations and YouTube videos.


@JosGroen to offer a brief tutorial on how to invite our professional networks to see the Open Organization group.
