Years ago I heard someone describe our relationships with our closest loved ones, as the people that experience our existence. The people who see you wake up, shares meals with you, listens to you and tells you stories about events in their lives.
I think many of us replicating the same feeling with online friends, in discord communities, on Reddit and in twitch chat. We become a part of a group of people that experiences the things comments you make, and jokes you tell.
Differently, we do the same in blogs, on social media and with other content we create. We share a little something of ourselves, in hopes some people will see it, and maybe even engage with you.
Especially now that more of us use the internet many more hours in the day, I’m curious how this will influence how we can use communities to build things, and other possible disruptions in the digital space.

- What gaming taught me about leadership (part 1 of 9001).
- I need a mentor.
