I was in the kitchen a lot of the time but I think one thing that formed
the background to the meeting was that we should be forward-looking, and
work out what we wanted out of what was possible.
There's a brilliant bit in some Seeds for Change documentation that goes
Non-hierarchical societies have existed in North America for hundreds of
years. One example is the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, where in those
situations where consensus could not be achieved, people were free to move
and set up their own community with the support - not the emnity - of the
town they were leaving.
I think the fork is a bit like that except that we're all leaving town. It
happens in lots of organisations. Hopefully at the end we'll have two
great new friendly towns not too far apart and with a decent bus service
As regards the differences between some people and some other people (and
I think the Venn diagrams there are a lot less clear cut than the fork
might imply) I heard a lot of the same time-consuming stuff as I've heard
at the last two network meetings so I think it's fair to say a forking is a
realistic way of not spending any more time on those stalled differences.
