Though presented as a two-column PDF document (and therefore almost impossible to read online), this article is a nice summary of the discussion surrounding online communities from last year's Net*Working 2002 conference held online in Australia. Readers will want especially to note the diagram on the last page summarizing major issues and attributes of online communities. The same author provides a similar summary, and a similar diagram, for the discussion surrounding Communities of Practice. Other titles available from the Net*Working 2002 'Extra' include Managers unlock the secrets of success by Peter Le Cornu, Teaching Online: Complex, chaotic and creative by Marty Cielens, and Bridging the Digital Divide by Martha Goldman.
