🌳 The sun came out and I spent a good chunk of the day hanging with my kids in the forest. Wheee!
I've been thinking a lot about the tools we need to build community and how we can think more strategically about our choices.
Tools and technology come and go, but perhaps categorizing the types of tools we use is an approach that has more longevity, or at least helps us spot gaps.

🧣 Fostering Stronger Collaborations in Communities Through The Scarf Model - by Lana Jelenjev.
The SCARF model is a brain-based model created by David Rock that focuses on how people interact socially. The foundation for the SCARF model lies in our brain’s need to either minimize danger or maximize reward as we respond to our environment.
Are we out of practice? Or what I've been thinking recently, do we look back on community too fondly? I think it's a mix of both and likely many other things. The world has long had injustices, and our awareness and our needs have changed. Regardless, community is still the magic key!
🗞 Tumblr’s only viable business model is shitposting from TechCrunch.
People talking about Tumblr and Twitter not getting their business model right...which has gotten me thinking that maybe Substack is the real one to be keeping an eye on, in terms of generating real money?
🤗 A Shortcut for Caring for Others (and Being Cared For Yourself) from Culture Study.
"..we also need to be better at asking and receiving care, because all of this community work depends on divorcing ourselves from an understanding of anyone, anyone, as uniquely givers or receivers.
But the reality is: a lot of us are very, very bad at giving or even asking for, let alone receiving, help."
