The author thinks it is funny when people come up to him telling him that they need a community. He laughs and says that there are already communities that exist, they just need to tap into them. Networking is one suggestion that he gives to be able to include yourself in an existent community and play a role that will benefit you and others.
- You are part of many communities. Location, social group, work, etc.
- We need to adapt to the modern type of networking.
- That the word community is subjective. It can have as many meanings as there are people in an organization to make meaning.
“Why “Network”? Network, defined as “a group or system of interconnected people or things” describes a set of connected entities but does not imply or assign activities, relationships or outcomes the way “community” seems to.”
