This is a response I wrote about building community on the Amodus platform.
"The most intriguing thing about a community is how the people in that community give shape to it through their contribution and levels of engagement. Community is an emerging proposition. If we are in tune with that, we can probably begin to recognize the true value that gets created on all levels as it emerge and becomes evidence of how we engage and what we share and ultimately what we create together.
As always, with a bit of distance and attention, we will begin to recognize the patterns.
The real beauty is in our story as it evolves - the humanity we share with one another as we reveal parts of ourselves in how we engage and contribute to these discussions. These dialogues are the documentation of this.
Each day as I read through the exchange here, I learn a wee bit more about each one of you."
