What makes people 'tick'?

Writing about web page

I've foolishly agreed to do a Pause for Thought tonight.

Last week I had a great idea about this – involving the idea of community and talking about blogs, Revelation websites and messageboards, media team, WIM, National Rev etc…but now I'm thinking of talking about my PhD research and what led me to do it.

Personally I'd prefer to find out about a person and what makes them tick than to know about different ways of joining Rev communities.

This led me to my next thought – surely you have to know about people before wanting to join a community?

For example, this blog community – the most commented on blogs tend to be where people tell you the innermost details of their lives, for example, Mat Mannion and Casey whereas blogs that talk about other people and tasks, such as Innovating Research! and Neighbourhood #1 hardly get any comments…

Arghh…what shall I do?

    I was thinking about why so few people (relatively, I mean) use the Rev messageboard, and pretty much came to that conclusion. The people on there, for the most part, are just random strangers unless you go to things, meet them and spend time getting to know them. Then using the messageboard is like using msn/similar to talk to people you actually know- I don't think a single person I don't know in person posts on there…

    So yeah… what I'm trying to say is, I agree with your assertion. Or the answer to your question is yes… or something!

    See you soonxxx
