Monday’s feed your curiosity post got lots of visitors, and many of them clicked through to the featured sites.
I was really pleased about that, because the post’s purpose was to share their great content.
However, somebody made a really interesting observation:
“I looked at those blogs you linked to. They were all really good and all, but their blogrolls all link to the same sites. They all seem to reference each other too. Are you all part of some secret club? Is this just a clever ruse to promote your particular way of thinking?”
We’re all linking to each other. We’re all connected on twitter too.
I’ve always seen that as a good thing: the evolving group discussions help to sharpen my own thinking.
The community aspect is very important too.
But is this ‘clique’ healthy?
Does it really improve our thinking, or are we in danger of becoming a homogeneous planning ‘cult’?
It would be great to hear your thoughts.
