The New Community
Derek Powazek, Consultant, Powazek Productions
Community used to be defined by location, affiliation, or membership. But today, the internet is fostering a giant network of interconnected communitites, most without any central authority. What happens when communities form and no one's in charge?
This session will outline the ways decentralized community tools (social bookmarks, participatory media, free APIs, blogs and tagging) are enabling spontaneous communities of interest to form, and how they're changing traditional notions of community, media, identity, and relationships.
