Lessons about Community from Science Fiction
This talk focuses on community tips told through science fiction. While the topic is fun and a little silly, the lessons about communities are real and tangible.
Here are just a few of the things that I will talk about:
- Borg assimilation and bringing new community members into your collective for new ideas.
- Specialization is for insects. The best community members are the ones who can help in a wide variety of ways.
- Community members are valuable, don’t treat them like minions.
- Travel to strange new worlds and meet interesting people.
