Community vs. Ideas. Relationships vs. Causes

An idea can spring you into motion. A community provides support but does not imply neither intrinsic value nor deep knowledge.

A cause can touch you deeply and baffle you into action. A relationship (deep as it may be) does not equate neither to affinity nor to connected value.

The main shift on thought could be around these two concepts. A community is formed around an idea and valuable relationships are bonded by a cause.

You can create a community of thousands around the idea that “Yes, We Can” but you cannot squeeze that idea out of an existing community.

The topic deserves a much deeper interpretation but it is important to understand that online, ideas and causes seem to be the driving force forward. Hat tip to Brian Solis for the inspiration with his IdeasProject

  1. Right here is the perfect blog for anyone who really wants
    to understand this topic. You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that
    I really will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic which has been discussed for decades.

    Great stuff, just great!

  2. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the
    problem solved soon. Cheers

  3. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and
    sources back to your weblog? My blog site is in the exact same
    niche as yours and my visitors would really benefit from a
    lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if
    this alright with you. Cheers!

  4. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a means you are able to remove me from that service?
