Building Vibrant Online Communities

Via WordPress' Matt Mullenweg I found this interesting post about building online communities. There were some interesting points. None of them really surprised me, but they are good points to keep in mind when endeavoring to build an online community. Also, if you're looking for more of the basics of building an online community, I recommend the earlier post he mentions as well. I'm going to keep these in mind as I'm building up inReview.net, for sure.

I recently came across some similar content, aimed more at the specific role of hosting conversations online, which may be relevant. It's pretty old content, but seems spot on. http://www.rheingold.com/texts/artonlinehost.html
