what makes a community?

This is quite fascinating to me.. anything on sl brings me back to a different time in my life when i tried to be in academia… it’s a very interesting concept. look at boro park, williamsburg, the uws, all isolated communities. for that matter, china town, flushing, and sunset park. how different really is that from this? NYT article: As Town for Deaf Takes Shape, Debate on Isolation Re-emerges.

I will not allow posts on how to raise deaf children or cohloclear implants. I don’t want that discussion right now. I won’t moderate any of those posts through. Let’s just try to discuss the makings of a community ?
