When you’re starting a community, really you are designing one.

I had been thinking about what it means to design a community. Some people say community can’t be designed. I disagree, though I do think it’s a very different process than other design processes.

I think when we do design community a big part of it is in deciding upon what it is we do in community. I’ve definitely been very intentional with all my behaviour in community. Choosing what to do, and what not to do.

Everything you do.
Every conversation you have.
Every idea you experiment with.
