😈 The Battle for Good and Evil - Ethics within Communities of Practice

Community ethics is a topic close to my heart, even if it causes me significant stress. 🤣

☢️ Warning: Believing The Surgeon General’s Social Media Warning May Be Hazardous To Teens’ Health

Social media is a hot topic, and it often gets slated. However, we cannot deny there are some huge positives to it. This post looks at some of the positives and how adding a warning is an over reaction.

😬 "Community" is the new "family"

The danger of "community" being perceived incorrectly is valid and real:

The community frame can work – but plenty of spaces do not really want a community – they want a(nother) space of attentive consumers.

So whenever I read something's a community, I ask myself whether it is a gathering space instead. I also started replacing the word "community" with "collective," which helps me recognize that most so-called communities do nothing to build the power of the people in them. A collective builds power, a community makes us feel part of something, and a group space is a room to gather in. Putting people in a room does not organize their power.

🌐 Wikipedia Pain

Wikipedia is a mammoth and I always appreciate opinions, thoughts and sneak peeks into how they operate. This post highlights voices who say it is flawed.
