Communities of practice and innovation

Dorine Ruter alerted me to the Einstein picture (I'm stalking her through my delicious inbox). I'm very interested in innovation stimulated by CoPs. Unfortunately I did not keep the article in the newspaper (Volkskrant) some time ago about Einstein. It did talk about the fact that he used to talk through his ideas with other practitioners. It's still a question for me in how far people need space for their own creative thinking processes (based on experiences) versus interacting with members in their communities of practice.
