Traditionally a “community” has been defined as a group of interacting people living in a common location. Currently there are dozens of different types of communities, and even many more definitions of what “community” really is. I’d like to post some thoughts on community building, as it is the core of what Refresh has set out to do; build a community and promote it.

A few moments ago, the team at Twitter (under the direction of Doug Bowman) unleashed the new Twitter homepage: It’s pretty interesting (and very telling of potential future plans) that they are able to segment their trending topics into time-based buckets. This only makes apparent the computing power of the Twitter API. The prominence of search has us thinking that Twitter is going in a new direction. It’s not just about conversations and connections anymore. We dare say: Twitter Search…
