A core value of Survival CHI is community. Community can be made up of many. Or just a handful of people–even as little as two. And an important aspect of community is making sure it runs well. If you care enough to have someone as a friends, shouldn’t you care enough to put energy into not destroying it?

    Excellent insight into building successful collaborations of any sort. One simple take-away I will use: If the situation cannot withstand planning and asking questions, what are the chances it will withstand the test of real life?

    Great topic.
