I've been having lots of fun with Racket, a short audio form platform, and they launched a new thing where you can ask questions and people get to respond, all in audio of course.

So, here's a chance to get involved, I posed a question: What makes a good community experience?

Come and share! (I have a few Racket invites going too)

We’re discovering a collective sensibility that’s more dimensional and participatory than the unconsciously formed communities of the past. We had to pass through this stage of individualism in order to get there.
