This week in community building — Issue 91

Dreams of discord

Beyond that, I don’t know. Is a chat room, even a very good one, just another trickle of mild dopamine hits, another social slot machine lined up beside the rest? Or is it an opportunity to make deeper connections, the kind that might be truly generative? (You start chatting with an interesting person on the Dagger Discord, and six months later, you’re building a website together!)

Is it just… a hangout? Nothing more, nothing less?
