Communities that grow organically grow without social norms:
• Humans are social creatures • naturally gravitate towards each other (any port in a storm problem) • communities are creatures. Once you understand it, they're easy to predict. Steps:
Identity + Communication = Community
Warrens - smaller areas (sub-reddits) Plazas - larger areas
* Motivations * Values * Cultural Norms (how they communicate the previous two)
Doing what attracts is better than doing what repels.
