Seven Habits of Highly Connected People
This article came up in our discussion with Terry Anderson yesterday. In it, I (Stephen) outline the practical side of networking - the way our understanding of how networks work manifests itself in day-to-day practice. Stephen Downes, Stephen's Web, October 9, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Re: Passion Versus Reason
What distinguishes between groups and networks? We've talked about various characteristics - such as reason and passions - but in my (Stephen's) writings, I have identified four dimensions of difference between the two:
1. groups emphasize sameness, networks emphasize diversity
2. groups emphasize order and control, networks emphasize autonomy
3. groups emphasize borders and membership, networks emphasize openness
4. groups emphasize additive, cumulative knowledge, networks emphasize emergent knowledge. Stephen Downes, CCK08 Moodle Forums, October 9, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
