A friend of mine told this receipt to build online groups and networks:
The two things that were brought up most often included:
* Start with a small group of passionate believers
* Find ways to work with leaders
SO a blend of top down and bottom up change methods.
I find the word "passionate believers" very important in the blend to have the group successful. Passion and trust mixed togheter are indispensable.
Let's reflect on the power of emotions in the so called vitual world. Many people say the Net to be too "cold". I don't think this is true. On the other hand, I see so much passion around with people so much involved…
Well, maybe the Net is COOL and not cold!
