The "Open Letter on World Dynamics"
Some Reflections on an Intervention


This paper reflects on the socio-political context and the analytic background of the "Open Letter on World Dynamics" before turning to issues of delivering a consultative intervention to a massive system using concepts and procedures drawn from the field of complexity. Massive circulation was achieved by using an e-mail meta-net cascade, supported by web-site and more traditional mail-based means of distribution. Feed-back on the initiative, the process and its content is reviewed.
