´Community´ is one of those words that feels good: it is good ´tohave a community´, ´to be in a community´. And ´community´ feelsgood because of the meanings which the word conveys, all of thempromising pleasures, and more often than not the kind of pleasureswhich we would like to experience but seem to miss. ´Community´ conveys the image of a warm and comfortable place, likea fireplace at which we warm our hands on a frosty day. Out there,in the street, all sorts of dangers lie in ambush; in here, in thecommunity, we can relax and feel safe. ´Community´ stands for thekind of world which we long to inhabit but which is not,regrettably, available to us. Today ´community´ is another name forparadise lost - but for a paradise which we still hope to find, aswe feverishly search for the roads that may lead us there. But there is a price to be paid for the privilege of being in acommunity. Community promises security but seems to deprive us offreedom, of the right to be ourselves. Security and freedom are twoequally precious and coveted values which could be balanced to somedegree, but hardly ever fully reconciled. The tension betweensecurity and freedom, and between community and individuality, isunlikely ever to be resolved. We cannot escape the dilemma but wecan take stock of the opportunities and the dangers, and at leasttry to avoid repeating past errors. In this important new book, Zygmunt Bauman takes stock of theseopportunities and dangers and, in his distinctive and brilliantfashion, offers a much-needed reappraisal of a concept that hasbecome central to current debates about the nature and future ofour societies.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,7, Universität Kassel (Wirtschaftsinformatik), Veranstaltung: Collaboration Engineering , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1. Einleitung Das Internet wird zu einem immer bedeutenderen Teil in unserem Leben. Laut einer Pressemitteilung des Statistischen Bundesamtes vom 03.12.2009 besitzen 73% der privaten Haushalte einen Internetzugang, somit ist die Zahl von 27 Millionen Haushalten in 2008 auf 29 Millionen in 2009 und damit um vier Prozentpunkte zum Vorjahr gestiegen. (vgl. Statistisches Bundesamt 2009) Der Begriff Web 2.0 macht die tiefgreifenden Veränderungen des Internets deutlich. Internetnutzer sind nun nicht mehr nur Konsumenten sondern auch Prosumer, das heißt auch Autoren. Grundlage dieser Art des Informationsaustausches bieten Genre der Social Software, worunter man Foren, Instant Messaging, Wikis, Blogs, Social Bookmarking und Social Networking zählen kann. (Stieglitz 2008, 1) So erfreuen sich neben dem Online-Shopping, dessen Nutzung bei privaten Nutzern immer weiter zunimmt und von 2007 auf 2008 um sieben Prozentpunkte auf 51 Prozent gestiegen ist (vgl. Statistisches Bundesamt 2008), auch Virtual Communities steigender Beliebtheit und Bedeutung. Jedoch werden in diesem Zusammenhang nur wenige empirische Studien durchgeführt (vgl. Stieglitz 2008, 138). Dabei ist zu beachten, dass Virtual Communities nicht nur in ihrer Anzahl immer stärker zunehmen, sondern auch hinsichtlich ihrer Mitgliederzahl. Viele Internetnutzer sind nicht nur Mitglied in einer Community, sondern teilweise auch in mehreren. (vgl. Stieglitz 2008, 2) Im Rahmen dieser Hausarbeit soll das Geschäftsmodell der Virtual Community anhand zweier Fallstudien näher erläutert werden. In Kapitel 2 werden zunächst die Begriffe der Virtual Community und der Fallstudie definiert, sowie das dazugehörige Geschäftsmodell zum Aufbau von Virtual Communities erläutert. Anhand dieser Grundlagen werden in Kapitel 3 nun zwei Fallstudien vorgestellt und untersucht. Dabei handelt es sich zum einen um ein Lernnetzwerk der Universität Potsdam, zum anderen um das Expertennetzwerk der Börse Berlin AG. In Kapitel 4 wird eine abschließende Betrachtung gegeben und die Erfolgsaussichten von Virtual Communities bewertet.

Providing a critical and incisive examination of community forestry, this is a detailed study of complex issues in local forest governance, community sustainability and grassroots environmentalism. It explores community forestry as an alternative form of local collaborative governance in globally significant developed forest regions, with examples ranging from the Gulf Islands of British Columbia to Scandinavia. Responding to the global trend in devolution of control over forest resources and the ever-increasing need for more sustainable approaches to forest governance, the book highlights both the possibilities and challenges associated with community forestry implementation. It features compelling case studies and accounts from those directly involved with community forestry efforts, providing unique insight into the underlying social processes, issues, events and perceptions. It will equip students, researchers and practitioners with a deep understanding of both the evolution and management of community forestry in a pan-national context.

Community ecology: the study of the patterns and processesinvolving two or more species - has developed rapidly in the lasttwo decades, driven by new and more sophisticated researchtechniques, advances in mathematical theory and modeling, and theincreasing pressure on the environment wrought by humans. Once apurely descriptive science, it is now one of the mostforward-looking areas of scientific inquiry. Morin skillfully guides the reader through the main tenets andcentral concepts of community ecology - competition, predation,food webs, indirect effects, habitat selection, diversity, andsuccession. In an attempt to introduce the reader to the most balancedcoverage possible, Morin includes examples drawn from both theaquatic and terrestrial realm and from both plant and animalspecies. Balancing theory with experimentation and drawing onexciting new studies to complement the historical foundations ofthe discipline, he also stresses that both the empirical andtheoretical approaches are necessary to drive ecology foward intothe new millenium. The final chapter on applied community ecology ably demonstrateshow community ecological processes have a wide environmentalrelevance. Although in its infancy, the application of communityecology to emerging problems in human-dominated ecosystems couldmitigate problems as diverse as management strategies for importantdiseases transmitted by animals and the restoration andreconstruction of viable communities. Required reading for all students and practitioners interestedin community phenomena, Community Ecology marks an importantcontribution to the development of this protean discipline. * * The first serious textbook for a decade on one of the keystonesubdisciplines of ecology. * Broad taxonomic and habitat coverage. * Section on implications of community ecology for environmentalissues.

While transnational conglomerates consolidate their control of the global mediascape, local communities struggle to create democratic media systems. This groundbreaking study of community media, first published in 2005, combines original research with comparative and theoretical analysis in an engaging and accessible style. Kevin Howley explores the different ways in which local communities come to make use of various technologies such as radio, television, print and computer networks for purposes of community communication and considers the ways these technologies shape, and are shaped by, the everyday lived experience of local populations. He also addresses broader theoretical and philosophical issues surrounding the relationship between communication and community, media systems and the public sphere. Case studies illustrate the pivotal role community media play in promoting cultural production and communicative democracy within and between local communities. This book will make a significant contribution to existing scholarship in media and cultural studies on alternative, participatory and community-based media.
