Then, create something else. Or create the same thing. If you keep creating, someone will notice. It doesn't have to be someone who will put it on YouTube or someone who will give you a $1M marketing budget. It could be your neighbor. Could be your boss. Could be your family. Someone will notice. And someone will ask about it. And if you're putting your heart in it, they'll want to know about what you believe. And you can tell them. And after you tell them, you make them create something.
I love this thought. Go to a chrysler forum and they'll be doing their own versions of womp. Go to a knitting forum and you'll find a subset of them writing poetry or competing in one or two other arenas. That's not to mention the subject-matter of expertise that drew them together in the first place. Whenever groups of people get together it seems that we naturally
start creating stuff. Often we get together just so that we can compete and learn from each other. It's how we started with rocks and ended up with highly crafted stone axe heads.
My problem with this though, is that the participation model for groups tends to follow a power law distribution. Here Clay Shirky goes into a fairly detailed explanation
For every awesome thing you create, you have 1000 people who appreciate it, but figure they can't even compete and so don't even bother starting to invest the time required. Now not to get too meta, but I think PD avoids this problem somewhat, and displays an incredible amount of creativity because we applaud all
forms of creativity with the possibility of some exceptions I can't think of. If you don't feel you can write, then you can still legitimately hold a claim to the group energy if you're wowing people with your awesome topiary.
But crucially, this is part of the narrative
of the site. It doesn't happen everywhere else at the same scale.
So for this to work, I think you'd also need to transmit that "every form of creativity is cool" narrative, and so we're back at square one?
Discordia isn't like crabs, caught as easily as sharing underwear.
I believe we could craft something that infectious. Should we?
