I was quite surprised by this too. Might see if we can add some option to eventbrite to capture this information.
One of the interesting things about ‘community type’ is how most people tend to define what they do. In my book I mentioned the more academic framework of community of place, practice, action, interest, and circumstance. But I’m finding more and more that very few people (except possible CoP practitioners) define themselves that way.
The most common is B2B, B2C, internal / KM com, and hobbyist (or personal) communities.
So maybe the latter is a better framework for this? As much as I’d love the more academic (and accurate) stance to win through, the sector seems to be more definitive for most people.
