2.4 Everything sites as community

The definition of community just described is perhaps the most restrictive that can be used, and even if Everything2 does not fit perfectly into the definition, there are lessons to be learned. Community, as far as it is useful for a workplace setting rather than a family setting, may include just the occasions where there is enough of the strong and weak connections described above to be useful. Everything2 is as close to a community as can be found on the web, and given the amount of content that has been created on the site, relates to workplace situations. Community in this sense relates to the Bender definition, but is more useful when considered in a less intense way than Galston argues.
