Breadth of term[edit]

This term is much more broad than that identified here ("a means by which network assets and or network users are segregated by some technological means for some established purpose"). Can someone expand this to capture the broader range or perhaps create a disambiguation page? In my prifession, a COI is used to mean people with a similar professional interest (e.g. environmental communicators). Thanks, Hu Gadarn 04:39, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments. Actually the article describes "How" users are technically segeregated into logical groups. The segregation can happen along many different lines including putting users with similar professional interests into groupings; including what mentioned above.

As such it appears that the use of routers, firewalls and VPNs as devices that provide physical separation is not correct. They provide logical separation. As a user I can be physically connected to a network but have no logical connectivity to other users because of these devices. (talk) 15:17, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

I agree, the DoD sense of Community is the *people* involved doing data sharing, and the article "means by which network assets and or network users are segregated" is both a lefthanded way to say that and is focusing implementation to networking so later content is only looking at router approach vice the higher governance and alternate implementations such as a filesystem approach or a software content manager like SharePoint or something else. See also "DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy (DS) and Community of Interest (COI) Training", "COI Basics" or the glossary

Department of Defense usage[edit]

"COI" in the department of defense refers to a group of people who come together to share data. It has nothing to do with computer networking routers, etc. References to DoDD 8320.2 and 8320.2G should be removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:22, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Please merge the two articles on Communities of interest[edit]

The two articles describe different definitions of the term 'Community of Interest': One describes the rather technichal term used in the field of Computer Security (capitalized: Community_Of_Interest), the other describes what is understood as a type of Virtual Community (only the first word is capitalized: Community_of_interest)

Why I do beleive that this should be one article instead of two (that would still need _way_ more clarification and cross-linking): Because the terms are so closely related! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:01, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Do not merge — These are completely distinct meanings, one of which (this page) has a formal definition. If necessary for avoiding confusion, I might suggest renaming the articles. — Ryan McDaniel (talk) 19:36, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Do not merge — These two articles only share a common name. They have nothing to do with each other. This is so evident; I can't believe anyone would even suggest this. (talk) 14:17, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Do not merge — You may want an disambiguation page, but don't merge the articles. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:55, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Do not merge — There is already a disambiguation page for COI. I've deleted the proposal as this seems fairly unanimous. NathanielPoe (talk) 19:45, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Do not merge — The two are quite distinct. Compo (talk) 18:23, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Do not merge — This is still flagged for merging so I guess it is still being considered. The two things are quite separate. Compo (talk) 09:38, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
