p. 41: "It’s always been the case that if you want to involve people" -- should be "wanted", and I think it has always been the assumption. Something about it being an underlying, unquestioned idea that is not (as it turns out) actually true, versus just the fact of what happened. Hairsplitting, maybe, but "case" did not ring true.

p. 41: Asynchronous, as in, people -- should be colon: "as in: "

p. 41: not to obliterate meetings -- "obliterate", as in destroy? Not "eliminate", as in do away with?

p. 41: "In our organisation, we use meetings for making meaning together, and we use Loomio for making decisions." You just clarified, in one sentence, a idea that I and my sister (who is a professional meeting person) have had long discussions about for years. This is so brilliant--"making meaning together". It is such a poetic way of identifying that quality of meetings that has nothing to do with Getting Things Done but is so vitally necessary to Getting Things Done. Not to mention the radical concept of moving decision-making into the asynchronous online space. It's just brilliant. And all in a single sentence!

I just hope I get a chance before I die to work in an organization that works this way.

I also hope before I die I remember that I don't have to make an individual post for each detail. I realize you must be getting a ton of emails about individual typos. Going forward I will try to consolidate as much as possible.
