Connected Communities Network
A Worldwide Web of Intentions, Stakeholders, and Results
The ConnectedCommunity.net domain has been registered for potential hosting of tools, applications, and services supporting the Strategy Markup Language (StratML) standard (ISO 17469-1) to enable individuals and organizations to form "truly connected" communities. Related initiatives include "smart cities" and "sister cities". However, the focus of the former is on connecting technology in the Internet of Things (IoT) and the focus of the latter is on paired cities.
By contrast, Truly Connected Communities are about more than high-speed voice and data communication or other narrowly specialized interests. Instead, they are characterized by highly productive interactions among people (individual human beings) based upon shared values grounded in the collaborative pursuit of common and complementary objectives of all kinds, with or without reference to locality.
For example, communities may be formed around interests (CoIs) or practices (CoPs). For social purposes, interpersonal communication itself may be the desired self-serving outcome, e.g., in social networking services. That is certainly a worthy purpose and it has made billionaires of those who do it best. However, for more mature business-quality purposes, truly and consciously connected human beings will form communities of results (CoRs) in service to others, thereby engaging performance partners to produce highly meaningful outcomes far more efficiently and effectively than ever before possible.

Without the engagement of enlightened individuals like you, the vision of the StratML standard simply cannot be realized: A worldwide web of intentions, stakeholders, and results.
