Communities of Practice and Networks in organisations

Diana Ayling recommended this presentation from Etienne & Beverly Wenger.
The points they make are specifically referring to learning in organisations rather than distributed communities, so something I am pondering is how might the points they make be impacted (if at all) by the distributed nature of some online Communities of Practice.
I feel that Slides 12, 13, 19 and 22 really pull out clearly the key activities and the possible outcomes within a community (plus a vocabulary and structure in which to frame them). They could provide a working model, rather than a descriptive model, which might track an online Community of Practice over time....
