[I’m sorry to my three regular readers to divert a little into Facilitating Online Communities course comment]
The questions – some of the big and some of the small
Blogs or forums?
Do I go back into facebook?
From Peter: I have no experience with Diigo rooms, and I don’t know how many do. I was wondering earlier about setting up a FOC08 group on Facebook, but again, don’t know if anyone is on there, and if Diigo is fine then I don’t see any reason to clutter the space and fragment the info.
I think for me the answer is no.
Are we in any shape or form a community?
One of the things I find fascinating, especially as we go into this next week of study, is the ambiguity or “play” between us as a group of people doing an online course on facilitating online community, and us as a potential (some might say budding) online community ourselves. I certainly find a close relationship in my own work between facilitating and nurturing/developing/“building” online community and for me this question gives context to all the others that have come up for us so far.

Netvibes. What a cool job Joao has done. When I saw this page I knew: the tsunami of ideas and thought (and thoughtlets) has hit.
Who am I?
The official question
What is community? This is of course the question of the week. It’s like the judge said when asked to define Porn: “I know it when I see it”
