Dev Journal & Screens - Hero's Journey -

Today, Lead Systems Designer Mike Paddock drops in to write about service abilities in Hero's Journey. This resumes our bi-weekly image and journal series.

One hundred and sixty-three years ago, on May 22nd, the great wagon train of 1843 set out on the Oregon Trail, intent on forming a thriving new community. Nineteen years later on May 20th, President Lincoln signed into law the Homestead Act of 1862, encouraging people to take up residence around communities throughout the western frontiers of the United States. And now, near the anniversary of those historic events, I have the honor of writing to you about community in Hero’s Journey.

Community is a big buzzword in the online world, which only makes sense. Email, chat rooms, instant messaging, newsgroups, forums, blogs, networking web sites, et cetera, are all tools of social interaction that promote community. The American Heritage Dictionary has several definitions for community.
