The magic number is 6: "We don't make communities for 1M, 100K, 10K or even 1K. The communities we make are for 6 people. Make that -- share it, write it, meet with it -- and let each of those spawn more communities of 6. Keep it small enough to really care about and relate to."
Dave speaking now: I have been thinking about magic numbers recently and I actually think the magic number is 5 -- but why split hairs? The important idea is that big things happen when small groups get energized. I believe in small numbers and cellular growth (More later on cellular growth, the number 5 and why I think it's magic).
