The paper on cross-cultural communication I talked about a few posts ago is downloadable from the CPsquare newsblog. We wrote the paper as part of the seven-weeks online Foundations of communities of practice workshop, highly recommended if you want to learn more about communities of practice or want to have a crazy online experience (or both). So if you are interested to read the full paper you can download it there.
On communication: I remember we had a chatsession with a guest speaker in that workshop, who talked about for the first time about C3. Nobody really asked about the term, and I assumed it was the C of community (after all that was the C word most often dropped in the workshop) till someone checked and he explained that C3= cross-cultural communication. So you checking for correct understanding is very important (but hard in blogs). Let's try if I can trackback to their trackback.
