New or used?

More random thoughts...

Don't make a new community when you can borrow an established one. If you want to spread a message, you can use the phone or internet. You don't have to set up a new communications network. If you want to change peoples' water or carbon behavior, you can use prices to send signals. There's no need to create new currencies, footprints, or certification systems. Further, you can tap the mommy network if you want to discuss the next generation's future -- there's no need to create a new networking hub for "Generation XY"
