If community came first

We’re all juggling tasks like mad this week. One thing I have to do is write the description for the Community Building Handbook I’m going to edit next year, to follow the Homelessness Handbook that comes out in March. (The latter is edited by David, so you can see that I’m getting the upbeat subject in this pair!) In my online browsing, I came across an article by Howard Rheingold about the Amish and technology. Howard’s a big promoter of technology but he’s clever about its effects, too. Do read the article, which ends, “I came away from my journey with a question to contribute to these conversations: If we decided that community came first, how would we use our tools differently?”
