COP the community of robbers??
- Hi Vance,
As one of my learned corrspondents wittily put it, the COP
could be a
gang of torturers (Sp Inquisition) it would still be a COP. A
DCOP would be a distributed gang of torturors.
There's gorra be more to it!
Ps Dafne Gonzalez is not related to President Chavez. Sorry.
The quote I posted from Wenger, McDermott and Snyder suggests that "if
you just get together and talk about something," this could be a CoP
(assuming what you talk about is a 'practice'). In the spirit of what
Pallof and Pratt characterize as "willingness to critically evaluate the
work of others" I wonder how Christopher will support his contention
that a listserv would not be a CoP because it does not "engage in
practice" by doing something other than talking.
I have to say in advance that I regard Christopher as the group's expert
in residence on this topic,
DISTRIBUTED communities of practice. It's nice to have the clarification
