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.
