I've moved a lot in my life and that's made building (and maintaining) communities and friendships challenging. It's been interesting/depressing to see early technology that once afforded that work evolve into a barrier. There is a lot of talk of modern loneliness - but I think it's built into the design. Given the sheer glut of content - our every attempt to reach out is akin to a whisper in hurricane. Resisting that design is an absolute imperative, but damn is it exhausting.
The Dreamer's Guild is a motley collection of developers, creators, artists, tech experts, and academics who somehow managed to become a community.
