I was reading this post over at CK’s blog and was struck by the way communities organise themselves organically.
CK was talking about the community that has grown around Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. Several years down the track there are pay-per-view screenings, conferences and even musical re-enactments. (And apparently the sing-a-long that CK attended was fantastic — is there any YouTube footage?)
In the comments, Ann Handley picked up on something I had said "One person’s passionate community is another’s collection of weirdos" and suggested (tongue-in-cheek) whether it could be the title of a blog post. Rather than laugh it off, I thought I would do just that … it should be up over at The Daily Fix in the next couple of days.
But it really does make you think about your own passions and interests. What would life be without a little weirdness? Relentlessly beige, I suspect. Bring back Buffy!
