Group chats rule the world


Which leads to the question: what makes one of these work? I’ve been a part of several groups and have tried to stand up many myself and I find the same patterns repeating across all the good ones. The best ones are a “forever dinner party” – good friends and conversation happening in perpetuity. They often share the below.

  • Gardener, not carpenter

  • Cooling rods and nuclear reactors

  • The n-1 group

  • Dinner party alchemy

  • Gravitational pull of a few topics

  • Size and Pruning

  • Shared rituals
