How to Develop a Participatory Community Culture - Dan Street

In Chapter 7 of 20 of his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview, hyperlocal entrepreneur Dan Street shares what elements shape community culture. One one hand, Street believes people organize around physical events. He terms them affiliation points and references Seth Godin's "Tribes". Street also believes people can organize around concepts, ideas, feelings, and social obligation to contribute within a community. Combined, a stronger community culture develops that attracts more participants.
Street is the founder and CEO of Austin, Texas based Loku (previously Borrowed Sugar) which develops Internet software to strengthen local communities.  Previously, Street worked in private equity at Kohlberg, Kravis, and Roberts (KKR) and management consulting at Bain & Co.  He earned a BA in music and business from Rice University.
