Knowledge, Learning, Community
I have been thinking about the concept of 'community of communities' recently (as opposed to the mass-market concept of communities fostered by sites such as Technorati) and the question of how knowledge and ideas flow through such a distributed network. And it's like this, via connectors from one community to the next. And just so, this post from Christian Long connects me to the Gurteen Knowledge Community, something worth exploring - what is interesting is that Gurteen has explicitly adopted the model of 'Knowledge Caf├ęs' as a model of learning, "mini-workshops where the participants engage in the theme of the evening. They are about networking, knowledge sharing and learning from each other - not chalk-and-talk."
