digest list.)

For all the fact that our common link is declared to be a shared interest
in organizational learning, and the application of those models to work
and life, we [don't] seem to be very good at using our LO list experience
as a way to reflect and then apply learning. Maybe I've been missing
something, but I don't often see us consciously and ntentionally drawing
meaning from what happens here, and then trying to link it to
organizational life.

Agree. And now to apply what you just mention, what can we learn from the
behavior of the list members? Here are some that I can think of to
hopefully spark a discussion.

a) People "define" and "walk the talk" their learning differently? Or do
they (some) just chip in for the sake of contributing?

b) People learn more about themselves after / while they're expressing
themselves in the list? Or maybe learn about how others learn?

c) People feel / think they add value by chipping in, regardless the
content, directly or indirectly? How do they know that?

d) Others . . . Any takers?
