Next week (August 9-14) our friends at Next Step Integral are leading a seminar on Community. Beams & Struts is serving as a sponsor of the event and in that capacity, our own Br. Trevor will be there and sending updates from the field.
In honor (or honour for the Canadians), we've spent the last month or two here at Beams & Struts writing on the topic of Community.
That community series has so included the following pieces:
My review of X-Men First Class on the formation of "mutant" community.
Br. Scott on the Evolution of Online Communities.
Br. Andrew on forming community with strangers in the midst of a city.
Br. TJ's interview with Randall Ross, of open-source program Ubuntu.
This small scattering by no means exhausts the all important topic of Community. It's a topic we will continue to be writing about in the short term and hopefully long into the future.
Come back next week for more inquiries into Community, especially Trevor's live reporting from the Next Step Integral Community Event.
