Good post. I like it.
Although I agree with your requirements, I am not sure that “growth” is a requirement. A community can be as little as 2 people and may remain that way for as long as the goal isn’t achieve.
Have you studied communities in a business-context?
Thanks very much for your comment – it means a lot to me that you have taken the trouble to read my ramblings, to consider them and then to share your thoughts.
You make an interesting point about growth. When I wrote this article, I had in mind a sustainable community, rather than a temoporary one. My thought was tha all communities loose people – through people dying off if for no other reason – so all communities naturally shrink unless they recruit new people. You’re right, however, that a community can come to an end before this is ever an issue – because its purpose is accomplished, for example.
I have not really studied communities in any context – business or otherwise – but just made a few casual observations on the world.
I’d be interested to know if there is anything I should have added to my list?
I like your blogpost. It is very interesting to read.
I am curious why I didn’t find this blog earlier.
Sharing is a virtue, and more people need to read this blogpost.
I will surely spread the word. Many of my Facebook friends will like it.
Cheers and keep’em coming!
