Tips for all of the newbies:

Check out the "local" timeline here. It shows posts from everyone currently on, which means it's all Philly peeps.

This is the magic. It's not a fast moving firehose so you can comfortably explore it.

- You might recognize some people. Say hi!
- You might find people you don't know yet. Find a convo that interests you. Say hi!
- Do you have stickers on your laptop? Check/contribute to .

Have fun!

Community isn’t a service.
Community isn’t a product.
Community isn’t even the value.

It’s a community of people who CREATE the value (whatever it is) for each other.
