The Good (and Bad) News on Community

A random thought while waiting . . .

Community is the big thing on the internet, and people spend a lot of time building profiles and finding community. That's a powerful, and positive force.

I'm afraid what drives it is a growing lack of community in the RealLife. No one keeps a job for the length of a career. Mobility within the culture is the rule; not stability. We seek others of like mind and the internet allows that. Good, but at the same time it allows us to not relate with those we see daily.
