Konrad Glogowski looks at some of the issues surrounding setting up communities – and whether or not it is worth joining some of them (e.g. School 2.0 etc on Ning). I think that now I, like Konrad, would be “beyond” needing that sort of support, I’ve found people that I like to read. However, were I starting out now, then I might find them useful launch pads. The drawback is that if you don’t find one that really suits, then it could be more off putting than just getting out there and exploring. But we all differ!
