A companies community should only contain companies.
what kind of community contains only companies? such a thing does
not warrant the term 'community'. i worked for too long in a
marketing department to swallow this metaphor.
I don't understand that at all. Companies work together on a daily
base, why shouldn't they here? Or is it just the wording?
i would say it is the meaning. to pick one difference, there is more
to a community than working together for a profit motive.
more to the point, perhaps: a community cultivates the commons, or
that which belongs to all, for the benefit of all.
or so i imagine.
otherwise communities would be called syndicates.
but we can agree to disagree on that.
