I’ve been a part of or have led many groups in my time. Each one had a unique “feel.” Some were hyper focused, and others generally organized around a topic. Some were high technology and others decidedly not so. Developing communities has always been interesting, since some communities flourish and others languish. Understanding how communities are formed – particularly communities that exist, at least in part, in the ethereal space of our digital age – is what Digital Habitats: Stewarding Tech ...more

Boring and uninsightful. Chapters were organized around bullet points and tables; felt like reading through a presentation. The recommendations and analysis seemed too obvious at times. It's a shame, for I think Etienne Wenger's Situated Learning: Legitimate Peripheral Participation is the complete opposite: engaging and insightful. ...more

I read this before it came out, and it is now one of my primary references for people thinking about technology and communities. Each time I pick it up, I'm working on a different problem for a different customer, and I always find fresh insights.

A bit dated in places, but a great primer on how to develop vibrant communities. Many of the techniques are situated within the digital context, but are just as effective when used in real time, real world situations.

“Meaningful learning in a community requires both participation and reification to be present and in interplay. Sharing artifacts without engaging in discussions and activities around them impairs the ability to negotiate the meaning of what is being shared. Interacting without producing artifacts makes learning depend on individual interpretation and memory and can limit its depth, extent, and impact. Both participation and reification are necessary. Sometimes one process may dominate the other, or the two processes may not be well integrated. The challenge of this polarity is for communities to successfully cycle between the two.” 2 likes
