Episode 3: Approaches to Online Community Structure

This episode contains the third of four recordings made during a recent discussion I led at the December Portland Web Innovators meeting. In this podcast, we talk about how to best structure a new community and how to evolve the structure over time as the community evolves. I started by discussing the pros and cons of three approaches: emergent, highly structured, and adaptive.


After these initial four podcasts, I am planning to switch to an interview format (via skype most likely), so if you are doing something really cool with your online community, please let me know! I am open to suggestions for potential interviews.
