It has been awhile since I reblogged a post, but I could not resist this one. David poses a tongue-in-cheek view of an emerging digital world. What are the implications? What are the unique qualities of community in the virtual world and which qualities do they share with traditional communities? I am looking at this as a topic area for my dissertation so this is humourous and thought-provoking.

About ivonprefontaine

I have been an educator for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked in private industry for 15 years, then returned to university to earn my education degree. For the past 11 years, I have been a co-creator of learning in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. A main theme in my learning there has been the roles of systems thinking, complexity theory, and organizational theory, and how they apply to education generally and the learning environment I share with students, parents, and colleagues.

    I be please, that we understand so well. We feel photo similarly and poetry. You live in USA. I was in Chicago only – 2 weeks (year 2005). I wrote book “America is for bull” – in Polish .. I do not know on so many well English.
    I greet, nice weekend for you

  2. So true, Ivon.
    I was only saying last night to my partner that WordPress (and it’s bloggers) have opened up a whole new world of digital experience to me…! I must admit, I’m enjoying it! However; I appreciate it is changing so quickly; what we understand today may seem like ‘old history’ within a few short years…! Don’t blink…! :)

  4. Heh. Hardly anybody socializes by “traditional” means anymore, so no digital socialization means no traditional socialization, either.

    …Honestly, I’m not even sure what you mean by “traditional communities.”

    • Josy, I agree. In the traditional days, whatever those were, we all socialized differently based on local culture. Now digital communities bring new influences that impact our local communities.

      Take care,
