Community is a Multiplier of Reputation

Inspired by Derek Sivers

I often hear advice of trying to be in the smartest room possible. And while I do agree with that, I think your reputation within that room” is underrated.

Weak Community 1
Good Community 100
Great Community 1000
Brilliant Community 10000

No Reputation 1
Weak Reputation 5
Good Reputation 10
Great Reputation 20

To calculate the value you receive from a network multiply the two.

The best network with no reputation is worth 10000 points.

The best network and the best reputation is worth 200000 points.

The network and communities you join matter. But the reputation you have within that network matter too.
