some online communities:
push pull bar
-can be intimidating to post! (grammar, spelling, getting things right, etc.)
-lots of forums out there
-resource is taken for granted
-can we take the information from the forums and display it elsewhere?
-you never know who you're talking to!
how do you get more people to post?
integrating the 3d Warehouse rating system and forum? make it more like community
How did you find SketchUp communities/forums?
-by accident! got ton of replies, learning experience (forum etiquette, etc)
-AIA convention (by architecture trade)
-AIA 150 project
-people needs tools, scripts, plug-ins, etc.
Using other social communities for other social communities
-using #sketchup (to help label posts, search, etc.)
-tweet about things you're not selling
Online communities are started by having a common ground and can be strengthened by live/in person interaction.
You can develop a community based on anything, just need common interest!
-technology makes it much easier
Make a virtual (but physical) community online (meeting place?)
