Ch 8: Creating a Community Culture

 (Suggested Vignette – Mitchell Baker, Ian Murdoch)

Community culture and behavioral norms are established early. Sub-cultures also emerge as these projects grow. For example, the KDE project has sub-groups for artists, women and other groups. Several open source projects including Apache, Debian, KDE, Linux, and others have sub-groups where women gather online to help other women get involved in open source.
