The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I'm writing an article for a trade journal and was wondering if anyone has any good references to some articles about creating a PLN? or about communities of practice or anything along the history of PLNs in general.  I've done a few preliminary searches on the web and have not been able to find a whole lot.  Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places. 
Anyway, any help would be much appreciated.  Also, if you could leave your thoughts on what you think a PLN is, please do so in the comments.  You'll be helping to spread the word to a few folks here in Japan. 

Thanks in advance for your help.
