Hello Dear -

No, I'm afraid Veronica Conte was just a spammer. I'd love to have another conversation with you soon to continue exploring the idea of you follow up World Cafe stories and bringing them to us all. Please contact me back-channel and give me a few times when you'd be available to talk after the 26th, ok? Thanks, Peg!

Good. Thanks, Peg. I have some good ideas that I hope you will be interested in re gathering the stories that we find in our media searches...

There are amazing things going on all over the world that we only find out about because of the Google Alerts David has on "World Cafe". If you could - ideally - follow up on them and contact the person who hosted the events and get their stories up in the StoryNet here, it would be great.

Otherwise, perhaps you could summarize the new stories and put them on StoryNet with a link to the media coverage?

I look forward to talking more with you about these and any other ideas.

Hi Peg...
Welcome! We'd love to have you participate with us. Might you want to collaborate in some way with Amy Lenzo, who is coordinating our global communications as well as this on-line community?

I was very honored by your observations of the multi-generational gathering at the Systems Thinking conference and glad to know you are also in the Bay Area.

If you'd like to be of support to Amy, please contact her at
