An interesting story you have about your DI / Trialogue application:
I love to use the tool in large-scale sessions. I really feel inspired by the speed of the classical seminar. I am fascinated of the way the concepts of Red, Blue and Green are spread by word-of-mouth. I am especially dedicated and concerned about the use of the tool in peace building, community development and complex problem solving settings.
