    Good questions

    Always good to read Laird’s thoughts on consensus and community (in the interest of full disclosure, I received my facilitation training from Laird when I lived at Shadowlake Village in Blacksburg, VA). I need to reflect on the questions some more, but it might be interesting to discuss these questions within the Mach 30 Board. Where are we now, and where should we be (these are not always the same place). Please stop me if I get too process geeky. 🙂
