// SOCIAL & TECHNOLOGY
I recently stumbled upon 🐳 Whale thanks to the premiere community for community professionals, CMX Hub. And, I got to say, I'm enjoying it. According to @stringstory, it's essentially Snapchat + Quora. Ask a question, get a snap-like video for an answer. It's bringing micro-video services to the fore, and I've already answered a few questions from new users! Add me here.
// COMMUNITY & PHILOSOPHY
This 10-minute Youtube video goes through a philosophy known as "communitarianism." The reason the concept has got me intrigued is because it relates to the concept of individualism in relation to the collective (i.e. community). That the me needs the we in order to be. It's highly relevant with the rise in "sharing economy" businesses such as Uber, Airbnb, and more.
This book was gifted to me during the week - timely as the theme for November is "vulnerability." We all seek to connect. However, how deep we go depends on how vulnerable we're willing to be with another. This vulnerability also bears fruit in communities (i.e. trust). A highly recommended read for anyone looking to improve their relationships with others, or even themselves.
