Connective knowledge is knowledge that could be described as distributed , because it is spread across more than one entity. A property of one entity must lead to or become a property of another entity in order for them to be considered connected; the knowledge that results from such connections is connective knowledge .

Ross Mayfield, Oct. 2008 The periphery of this network contains three groups of nodes that are usually tied to the core through looser ties: 1) Those new to the community and working to get to the core 2) Bridges to diverse communities elsewhere 3) Unique resources that operate outside of the community, and may span many communities.
