    Kos has outgrown itself.  I signed on in early 2004, when it was growing fast but still small enough that you could read all the diaries.  I know the names, and I look for them in the comments and diaries.  This is unfair to newcomers, but since the other newcomeers don't know the old names, it all works out in the end.

    I look for your name because your diaries are instructive.  

    I think we just have to go with the flow.  This isn't a perfect medium; the more people who participate, the harder it is to keep the thread straight. I think on the whole that Kos has done pretty well making the transition to a really big institution.  It's not cosy, but it's still good enough to check in on a regular basis.

      Why is it that people have such a hard time with change? True, change for the better is more desirable, but change is the only sure thing.

      So, how do we manage the change? By being nostalgic for the good old days? Or, by talking to Markos and others about what needs to be done?

      Let's hear some proposals on how to steer this puppy a little better instead of wistfully thinking of glory days gone by.

      How do we make it what we want it to be?

        not recommend or troll, but let's shunt this sideways.

        I.e. It doesn't seem to belong here though tone or content yet may of the folks here seem to want to engage with it.

        Then we can have a sideways queue that people can go visit if they seek a little "different" in their day

        We are what we think. With our thoughts we make the world.

      •  it's not a question of change, per se (0+ / 0-)

        but rather different ways of interacting. change can be good, bad or neutral depending on where you're coming from and where you're going.

        as for making it what we want it to be, i'm pretty sure it's a lost cause. pushing too hard tends to invite a pretty hard backlash. still, there's a lot of good stuff in the margins, which is why i keep coming back.
