I have participated in several open space events at technical conferences, and I found them to be effective for getting people to loosen up and learn and contribute.
I conduct frequent technical sessions in my organization, and I thought it would be useful to try this format. Unfortunately 60% of the participants log in via WebEx.
It seems like it should be doable, although the law of two feet might be a challenge.
Has anyone ever run an open space event successfully over a web meeting?
What did you do to make it successful?
