the Digital Village family of virtual communities is a method for
creating social groups of a size consistant with Dunbar's number.
will be a member of one or more groups (villages,
families, guilds, associations) and will be able to build up a
reputation verified by his or her associates in those groups. The ideal
base group (village) is small enough that each member is known to most
of the other members of the group. A core group in each village (the
"village council") is responsible for the relationship between the
village and the individual members. In most situations, village members
will know each other in the physical world, and as an individual
changes real-world situations, his or her village memberships will
change to reflect the new situation. Regional and International
associations of villages will exist to facilitate the assimilation of
an individual into a new village, and to define relationships between
villages and other groups.
