Could these videos explain how online communities of practice really work?

I know this will cause a lot of disagreements between people, but sit back and enjoy the videos.

Overt the last few years I have used these videos to explain some of the concepts of Communities of Practice and what happen to most of them.

Building Airplanes in the Sky

I still feel this is the case for most online communities that they start flying ahead with work with out getting all the pieces together.  And during the flight you might have some of your members getting a bit messy.

Running with Squirrels

Another great video.  When it comes to the building of an online community so much emphasis is put on the technology which can scare people off.  If it was explained in simple terms and it’s about how the technology can help support what you need to do.  

Rather than here’s loads of technology of you go.  Would you really be scared of the squirrels?

Herding Cats

Another favourite.  And community facilitation can be explained in this way.  You will take a few scratches on the way.  But if you put the effort in, you will get your reward.
