Guy Kawasaki's advice on how to build a community, in particular a user community. These are the bullet points:
1. Create something worth building a community around.
2. Identify and recruit your thunderlizards—immediately!
3. Assign one person the task of building a community.
4. Give people something concrete to chew on.
5. Create an open system.
6. Welcome criticism.
7. Foster discourse.
8. Publicize the existence of the community.

Hi Flemming
I discovered Holo World a couple of days ago and I would just like to congratulate you on a beautiful piece of divinely inspired writing. I haven't read all of it yet or applied any of it... but I intend to do both sooner rather than later! I've made a start by printing out all the pages and will enjoy reading this new testiment in comfort. Many thanks for sharing your wonderfully enlightened 'download' with us. I raise my glass and say "Bring on the 100th monkey!" With Love and Light Jan :)(Ireland)

Cool. I sort of think I need to give it some more exposure again, and continue elaborating on it. I sort of haven't touched it for a while, but it is still very much my vision.

Genuino trabajo en equipo! Tu post me ha hecho reflexionar sobre el entusiasmo, que creemos motor de los proyectos profesionales y vitales, aunque ahora creo que por sí mismo el entusiasmo no lleva más que a la autocomplacencia, pues precisa de algo que le revista de sentido: la empatía con el otro, con el entorno, con los problemas de las personas. Empatía más entusiamo= capacidad de cambiar y tra=fsormarnsabiduría. Y creo que también método para superar los individualismos.

If there is evidence of Gurukul students being linked to bomb blasts, then, like madarsa studetns, they too should be brought under the sccaren.Justine and transparency is very important for a secular democracy to thrive. I am sure these measures will help ensure that no community feels that it is being discriminated against.It is this very insecurity and feeling of discrimination that acts as a catalyst for terrorism. If we can prevent this, it will help. [link] [url=http://mkcxfgotvcg.com]mkcxfgotvcg[/url] [link=http://vthhjl.com]vthhjl[/link]
