Meetdraw: Dorset creative industries networking

"Meetdraw is a meeting of digital animals to talk about and share collective passions. For everyone, no matter what they do or what stage they are in their career. It's for us by us. At times aided by beer, we shall fuel creativity, ideas and inspiration in a relaxed informal and fun environment. ... We support the local (Dorset) creative economy and provide an independent, neutral and open platform for communication and development."

(Paul Seys, 7 December 2009)

Nottingham Second Wednesday: gathering for creative industries professionals

"What is it? Second Wednesday is a gathering of people from the web and related creative industries. Originally founded nearly fourteen years ago for business directories to blow off steam, it's grown into an event open to anyone in the industry and provided the networking platform for several up and comers in the Nottingham scene. Anyone is welcome, as the event is free, and you'll always find someone interesting to talk to each time you attend.

When and where? We gather every Second Wednesday of the month at Antenna, it's that easy. Just come along at anytime (before 7pm if you want to see the speaker) and feel free to jump straight in and introduce yourself to get the conversation started. We're there until 9pm so if you're late don't worry – they'll be plenty of people around until the end."

(Jamie Huskisson and Chris Allwood)

Online Spaces: Communities, Chat Rooms, Inns, Settlements, Commons

The online spaces where virtual community members interact are referred to by a wide variety of labels including chat rooms (Read 1991), cyber–inns (Coate 1992), virtual settlements (Jones 1997), commons (Kollock and Smith 1994), and conferences (Hiltz and Turoff 1981). Some systems are completely open to the public, such as LambdaMoo (Schiano and White 1998), others are restricted to a membership (Schlager and Schank 1997), or a specific task or purpose (Erickson 1999). The diversity of online community space designs and labels highlights how system features provide a context for community interactions.

Community studies in urban settings

"harboured in personal networks that may be far flung, rather than in urban villages of neighborhoods (The Economic Leverage of the Virtual Community)".

Bowling Alone: Governance and Civic Engagement

"The norms and networks of civic engagement also powerfully affect the performance of representative government. That, at least, was the central conclusion of my own 20–year, quasi–experimental study of subnational governments in different regions of Italy [3]. Although all these regional governments seemed identical on paper, their levels of effectiveness varied dramatically. Systematic inquiry showed that the quality of governance was determined by longstanding traditions of civic engagement (or its absence). Voter turnout, newspaper readership, membership in choral societies and football clubs––these were the hallmarks of a successful region. In fact, historical analysis suggested that these networks of organized reciprocity and civic solidarity, far from being an epiphenomenon of socioeconomic modernization, were a precondition for it. ...

For a variety of reasons, life is easier in a community blessed with a substantial stock of social capital. In the first place, networks of civic engagement foster sturdy norms of generalized reciprocity and encourage the emergence of social trust. Such networks facilitate coordination and communication, amplify reputations, and thus allow dilemmas of collective action to be resolved. When economic and political negotiation is embedded in dense networks of social interaction, incentives for opportunism are reduced. At the same time, networks of civic engagement embody past success at collaboration, which can serve as a cultural template for future collaboration. Finally, dense networks of interaction probably broaden the participants' sense of self, developing the 'I' into the 'we,' or (in the language of rational–choice theorists) enhancing the participants' 'taste' for collective benefits."
