As a member, you also part of the worldwide Mighty Networks group which has over 10,000 customers, some with networks of over 200,000 members.
Founder Gina Bianchini says "Mighty Networks believes that a thriving community shouldn't be restricted to just a one-sided conversation. Instead, members should be able to partake in a dialogue and add value to the ecosystem as a whole. Content may be why someone comes to a website, but content alone will kill the creator economy. So it makes more sense to build a community that gets more valuable to every member with each new person who joins." To read more click here - 9 minute read

In his latest book Blueprint, Nicholas Christakis explains how evolving as hunter gatherers has equipped us to work together. He says we share these traits with other social mammals including, elephants, wales, dolphins and apes. As he says there are no social communities that do not feature friendship, love, teaching each other and cooperation.
It's tempting to believe that once Omicron is "defeated" we can start getting back to normal. However, in the video below, Nicholas Christakis explains that pandemics are like a Tsunami that floods the whole world and then eventually recedes leaving behind long term education, finance, psychological, infrastructure, emotional and supply chain problems. Having access to supportive members in this group will make solving these problems easier.
In the video below Nicholas Christakis outlines what to expect in the next few years of recovery. 25 Minute Video
It seems that by working together with fungi trees can share both nutrients and information and that they can even be altruistic, dumping minerals and nutrients before they die to help support the next generation. Take a few minutes to see how it works. You'll be surprised.
Surprisingly, the world's largest on-land organism is not an animal, but a forest. In mass it trumps the humungous fungus and has grown from just one seed. So it's natural that its roots share everything, from nutrition to news. Seems like a pretty good system, the forest has been around for an estimated 10 to 15 thousand years.
Like humans elephants educate their young, form friendships, mourn the passing of other elephants and cooperate with each other to achieve shared objectives. Here we can see how they learn to work together to get the food they both desire. Watch how the larger elephant talks to the smaller towards the end of the video. Didn't know that elephants talk? - They do, but at a frequency too low for us to hear.
Hear how Nicholas Christakis discovers the 3 degrees of influence. A bit like the 6 degrees of separation it shows how incredibly connected we are and how behaviour affects others (without us being aware of it). See how our behaviour affect not only our friends, but also our friend's friends and their friends too.
