Coate’s topics regarding online community have stayed pretty much the same over the last 15 years. My favorite quote of what he said about community was, “it can only really be true if the people who are actively involved in it, declare for themselves that it is true: we are a community.” This might be a little different today because more and more people are joining networks created by companies who establish them as communities. We just choose who we do and do not want in our own little specific sections of these communities. The difference between today and 15 years ago is the amount of people who are online. Online communities have attracted more than just those who want to find community. I think that is the biggest change.
