I am very interested in TS online. It seems to me that there are
several possible ways to do this ranging from:
1. A time frame essentially identical to a face to face TS with a
full time staff but everybody at their own home or workplace
2. a time frame of a month or more with perhaps a staff of 1 or 2 and
again everybody at their own place
I think there is a tremendous need for this on all kinds of issues
(and at levels ranging from the neighborhood to the globe) and that
there should be considerable opportunity for those who are skilled in
facilitating the TS sessions.
I would definitely like to learn more about what the experiments so
far have shown.
