How to Build Community

Someone asked me about resources for building community. This is a favorite topic of mine.

Use that to lay out shared interests and goals. Then make plans to pursue those. Where these factors diverge but are compatible, individuals or groups can take responsibility for developing different projects so as to create a more diverse community. Especially, use community values to set priorities, settle conflicts, and make decisions between different possible options.
