New Phase for the Reform Conversation

The reform conversation (as embodied here and in the Reformers Yahoo! Group) was born three and a half years ago of many foundations. Among these foundations were 1) the recognition that Landmark Education 2020 (the LandmarkEducation Charter) was not going to realize its intention of having "the power and magic of transformation alive and real for all people," and 2) that we, the graduate community, have the power to move the organziation, even if the leadership of Landmark itself seems unwilling or unable to realize the intentions of the enterprise and the Landmark community.

Landmark headquarters became aware of our reform conversation in the Spring of 2006, and soon after began a serious self evaluation. Landmark first considered updating LE2020, but realized, as we had, that an update would not be enough - that a full reinvention was needed. About a year and a half ago, Landmark initiated a process of self review, analysis and creation, which was shared with the broader Landmark community in the recent reinvention weekends.

Those of you who have been in the reform conversationup to now probably also recognize that our reform conversation has not been making anywhere near the sort of progress that we would need to make to ensure that our vision of the future ofLandmark is realized. The Landmark reinvention process provides a new context and a new opportunity (and a new inspiration) for enormous contribution from the reform community. You can expect to see a number of posts about this from me in the coming days and weeks.

In support of this new era, I have begun a new blog for a new phase of the conversation. The conversation will continue as the Graduate Reinvention Initiative. Please visit this new blog at:

Just as the reform conversation was at its founding three and a half years ago, I promise you that this conversation will remain at the vanguard of what is possible for Landmark, providing unique insights and initiativesthat will prove essential if this community (the entire Landmark community) is to realize its full potential.

Thank you.

You are not as important as you may view yourself ML. I see/hear you in a category of a lone person with fleeting list of infantile likes and dislikes and access to a computer and an instant audience and a grown up vocabulary who think the world should do everything in it's power to make them happy and who contribute 0. How are you any different from any "guy" in any roadside "diner" who knows what the president and everyone else around them should be doing. Your ship is way of course ML, and your mob initiative, while it is politically incorrect to say this, is completely without any value to others IMO.

It's always nice to be made wrong.

Just like to say that comment from Annonymous above shows massive and shocking contempt for democratic ideals.
