We visit the future, we live in the future each moment that passes.therefore if we build constant learning into our lives we learn how to mitigate risk, how to maximise benefits we can learn to manage the future well.

[Blog] How To Find Your Community's Founding Members
Those that comment on relevant blogs and news articles are also a good source of contacts. It helps if you have an existing list of contacts to launch a community. This is how most communities founded by amateurs begin. The founder reaches out to people they've known for years. They know these people are interested in joining a community. Some organizations confuse a list of contacts with their list of customers. They confuse the people whom know the founder personally and have developed relationships with the founder with those that purchase their products.
