Dave's Top 10 Musings On the Encouragement of Community in Multi-User Virtual Environments.

David White, Weblog, Mar 24, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is an interesting list. The first thing I noticed is that it contains elements of both autonomy and conformity, which it seems to me creates a bit of a tension. But then it seemed to me to have a very particular type of community in mine. Consider things like "there has to be frequent opportunities to generate and exchange capital" and "There should be a combination of structured and 'free' activities." This means that things like IRC and Yahoo Groups cannot create communities. But that seems wrong. Via George Roberts.
