This AMED/IAF initiative explores the potential of Open Source Thinking (OST) for personal and organisational development. OST can be viewed as an emerging process by which information and other precious resources are shared openly, for general benefit, whilst crediting their 'owners'. We sense that OST is changing our world, both in structure and process. The Editorial of our Spring 2013 edition of e-Organisations and People (e-O&P) here on OST gives an overview of some current issues.Come and join us with an open mind, prepared to act by turn as guest and host.
