GENERAL ISSUES (brainstorming and process discussion)
  • Statement of Purpose - Our first priority is to create an inclusive umbrella statement of purpose; specific issues will follow next.

  • Warren Buffet Ideas [Note: this is show-boating, and probably bunk. someone want to check? this page will soon be removed.] [then maybe go get his original letter to the NYT, please. there were good ideas there... I put it here so we don't forget his ideas, Terra]
  • Other General Ideas
  • Issues page

All documents created by this Working Group are DRAFT until it is approved by the GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

Page Notes

Move to rename: ditch "SPP," - adopt "Reforms": reforms is not deep enough, restructuring is better.
This avoids the extreme vagueness of 'ideas' and the over-complication of 'spp.' I will try to post a broad announcement on the google group to invite further discussion. [TF: yeah, but we're merging the facilitation/ideas group w/SPP, right?]

Sections to be addressed:
Strategies, Issues, Objectives, Finished Proposals, Tactics, Meeting Notes (and schedule), Background Info.

Who knows what this note is for? I can't figure it out. Can someone explain it, or if you authored, it erase it?
