CoPs- Behaviours

John Smiths diagram [below]-(part of a new book on CoPs authored with Nancy White & Etienne Wegner), to be soon released– looks at the vital behavours of CoPs. The aspects that intrigues me are the open ended conversations, I’m not sure if John is implying that there must be a sense of ‘open endedness in discussions’ or always room for rehetorical argument?  John’s tools Wiki is also an excellent reference on collaborative tools.

    Hiya Tim. The intention is that the discussions tend not to have a fixed end point, not a reflection on the content of the discussion. As to room for rhetorical arguments – well, that is up to the community!
