Tonight’s meeting and discussion got me thinking about the infrastructure that all guilds share. I’m talking about the internet, our WiFi, the hackitorium, projectors, bank account, legal status, those sorts of things. They are the shared means of collaboration; no matter what guild or guilds one might be part of, the lack of this infrastructure would be a painful blow to the community.
If we’re going to be exploring the idea of guilds more, it might be super useful to figure out what infrastructure in the space is truly shared and depended on by the whole community vs stuff that might be more predominantly controlled or maintained by a single specific guild. What would go in this list, beyond the things I mentioned?
