Hey Keith, I think i was saying the same thing in terms of some people finding community while others found a network. Since it’s about strength & quality (by quality here i mean type i.e. Not just info sharing but emotional for example) of connections – it can probably be identified between any two people (do they view each other as friends or acquaintances?)

Thanks for explaining covenant. I can see that kind of idea for teacher/student but no, i don’t think i see rhizo14 sub-communities that way. Isn’t it more of a peer, reciprocal relationship? Will post more from Rheingold when I have time. Trying not to quote the entire book on my blog, tho haha.
Looking fwd to your post on the matter tho, maybe more on covenants will clarify further
