...the community owns itself

Truer words were never spoken. Clay Shirky, a major influence on Blogging Network, describes five key points for traditional broadcasters in Broadcast Institutions, Community Values:

  1. Audiences are built. Communities grow.
  2. Communities face a tradeoff between size and focus.
  3. Participation matters more than quality.
  4. You may own the software, but the community owns itself.
  5. The community will want to build. Help it, or at least let it.
