Spot on Rich! "just communication with people with like-minded interests"

It's what we've always done: in prehistoric times we sat around the campfire sharing common interests with our clan.

Nowadays the campfire is the internet but our clan is still made up of people with similar interests.

Internet has made our world smaller right?

Thanks for sharing! Question and answer communities are one of my favorite types. It's amazing how many people out there are willing to help others, share expertise and experiences. Communities are making the world a better place. =)

I am to the internet what Jeremy Clarkson is to flower arranging and ornithology, but this short Richardness makes me realise i want to get the skills to build a nest on the world wide web, and dare i say gain some of the advantages of its use.

And on that bombshell... Goodnight.

Hi Rich! Thanks for another good post!

Here's an idea for next posts: I would be interested to learn more about using Facebook (and other existing platforms/networks) in creating communities. You mention here briefly your study groups on Facebook.

I'm mainly interested in communities as support for learnig and studying. Creating communities where the students already spend much of their time might sometimes be the wisest option.

Is it that online communities are changing the world or that the world is changing and online communities are just a part of that logical progression?

Thanks for this amazing blog. I have recently become a subscriber to this blog and i have spent the last two reading every post on the site. I am just getting started with communities and believe in the power of communities. I believe when C.K. Prahlad (new Age of Innovation) was talking about co-creation and R=G, N=1 he was really talking about communities. I have been struggling a bit with Peepaal (http://www.peepaal.org) but hope to revive it soon.

It really is fascinating to see how Online communities are shaping the world. It long matters if you have any real friends, you can be the most popular guy in the world. Its our job to figure out how to work within those means.
