RSVP: Cultivating Community - A Rosieland guide to building communities


by Robin Sloan

Today Rosie learned about 'Checkpoints'. 🤷🏻‍♀️

When a YouTube video is determined a suitable haven for checkpoints, its comment section is, by mutual agreement, no longer “about the video” but instead a shared space for brief, diaristic reflection.

Your community is like a forest

Just like the engineered forests with which we began, something is amiss with the engineered re-integrations that digital media makes possible. Networks built on metrics and data cannot account for the often intangible forces that bind people together, not unlike the mycorrhizal networks Simard identified.
