    • Why are More Libraries Needed?
      • No Media Utopias (that can do everything)
      • Data Redundancy is a good thing
      • Niche-based like Social Network Services
        • Orkut's big in Brazil! Mixi is big in Japan!
      • Need different libraries that focus around:
        • Languages, Cultures, Specific Media, Usage
      • Privacy Anyone?
      • Do one thing well, or a lot of things not so well
      • Open Source Software communities have developed strong strategies for building communities of practice
        • Wikipedia, Open Clip Art Library and others have learned
    • An Open Content Library Empowers
      • Maintain your own library on-line
      • Or, Maintain community around library
      • Make it public, or keep it to yourself
      • Make it legal (and clear) using Open Content Licenses (CC licenses or Public Domain)
      • Insure longevity with open formats
      • Insure interoperability with open services

        • Without good social, don't try technical
      • Technical
        • Good software catalyzes certain types of communications and activities
        • Bad Software hurts social/community

    • Make More Libraries
    • Community Development (Building)

      • ...and some misplaced Corollaries
    • Concepts
      • Make one solid goal for the project
        • Remember KISS: Keep It Simple
        • Do one thing well, or do many things not so well
        • Always ask: "Does this move us closer to our primary goal?"
      • Pick a solid simple name that can be simplified to a one word tag.
      • Use this tag/simple name for the domain name, etc for the project. It is your common branding.
    • Infrastructure
        • Also called Holy Trinity of Online Communication, or network of social software
      • Install CMS (ccHost, wiki, or blog)
        • collective memory
      • Maintain a group chat channel

        • synchronous communication
      • Setup a mailing list
        • Asynchronous communication
    • Social
      • Help edit recent CMS edits
      • Answer all relevant emails
      • Stay in chat channel and answer questions
    • Corollaries
      • Social Atmosphere is defined in first days to 2 weeks of a project
        • Start with a positive atmosphere, then this is bread into the communities dna
        • Starting with a negative atmosphere of flaming and disses, then the community will develop this way and more than likely will die.
        • Generally, it is amicable to be extra-nice, and cordial much like one would like in the real world.
    • Corollaries, cont'd
      • Real vs. Virtual
        • Generally, treat developers and people in general just as you would in the real world, if not better.
      • Promote Contribution
        • Reward contributors with praise!
        • Material vs. Non-material Rewards
    • Corollaries, cont'd
      • Dealing with problems
        • Personal problems between people should be dealt with offlist
        • Group problems should be handled decisively by a core member in a positive manner
        • Problems in a community should be dealt with internally before being publicly exposed (if at all).
        • 99% of the time this solves conflicts that arise
