Diversity rules, OK.

This diversity is well illustrated in the postings to this list. The
diversity keeps the threads interesting and stimulating, otherwise it
would be a long didactic monologue by LO-philes.

By being observers of the observer (history of conversations) that we are,
we can begin to distinguish the disclosive spaces behind the postings and
try to "listen" for the mental models that frame them. Thus we learn from
others' histories and can invent futures that incorporate of paths laid
down by others.
