Replying to LO13172 --

Bill's comment is timely. Not so much because of his acknowledgement of
Search Conference (which in my experience, like Future Search, is more
powerful as an action tool than a visioning tool), but because Fred Emery
died last Thursday morning. All of those on the LO newsgroup, whether
they ever used Fred's stuff, or had even heard of him, owe a debt to the
man and his ideas. Without him the whole concept of learning
organisations (and for that matter Future Search as Wiesbord actively
acknowledges) might well have been differerent.
