All this unmobilized love


All this unmobilized love by Erin Kissane.

But by treating a handful of technical capabilities and conventions as the low-level building blocks of social tools, we’re leaving almost everything good about the human experience on the table. Where are the networks that deeply in their bones understand hospitality vs. performance, safe-to vs. safe-from, double-edged visibility, thresholds vs. hearths, gifts vs. barter, bystanders vs. safety-builders, even something as foundational as power differentials? I don’t think we have them, except piecemeal and by chance, or through the grace of socially gifted moderators and community leads who patch bad product design with their own EQ.
