Although I have written many articles and memos for specific situations and publications over the years, the contents have broader implications that go beyond the specific context. With a modest amount of translation, the ideas can be applied to a vast array of other situations. These articles and memos may be freely distributed. But because they are copyrighted, they may not be published without my explicit permission. Information pertaining directly to Spaces Speak can be found at the pages Discussions and Downloads.
