qualities of different social experience models

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Friday August 01, 2008 Qualities of different social experience models (why there is no single idea behind "Community") I read Jonathan Trenns recent posts on the fallacy of community (and more on it ) which seems to argue the concept of community but combine a number of different elements together: culture (mostly), governance, and structure. I have other models for governance (but not yet for culture). After all more models may upset this in the future.

Relationships and Identity: Two Sides of the Social Networking Coin

Collaborative Thinking

Collaborative Thinking

Thumbs-down: The notion that employees start off with a "shared purpose" with the enterprise is an assumption that could have been explained better.

Without this, these models are too quickly ignored when a "sexier" approach comes along.
