Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner.

Social Reporter

Here’s the first of a series of posts on what that kit (and caboodle)** could be, as a set of resources for people I’m calling community enablers, with added networking. As I said yesterday, enablers might be councillors, community organisers, people running local groups, citizens developing a campaign and/or generally working to revive local democracy. A framework for community enabling (point 2) could provide the basis of shared practice.

"Collaboration and Community" by Scott London

John Tropea - Delicious Community

In a time of widespread frustration with politics-as-usual, in which confrontation, hierarchy, and exclusion characterize our primary means of problem-solving, the principles of collaboration are seen by many organizations, communities, and civic leaders as a more effective means of working for change than forming coalitions, task forces, commissions, interest groups, and other, more traditional kinds of partnerships. How does it differ from other models of cooperation?

More Thoughts On Social Presence

As site owner can only provide the fertile ground on which a community may grow, and then provide some gentle guidance to help the group thrive.
