So, what does this have to do with CCK08 and learning? Godin defines tribe as a self-selected , bounded group that people join for a sense of connection and group identity. The book blurb says “A tribe is any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader, and an idea.” This definition may dovetail into our week 5 discussion by giving us a label for associations which are more voluntary than groups as Stephen defined them.
One line from Godin’s talk I particularly liked:
“We don’t need another widget. We don’t need another thing. We need a connection.”
Maybe George should put it on T-shirts.
