How to build a “real” community. Must watch video

After last weeks post about Communities and Stack Overflow, there has been a lot of discussion around the topic. Dimitar Stanimiroff, the Regional Sales Director for Europe and Australasia sent me this video of Joel Spolsky, one of the Stack Overflow founders talking about how the community has evolved. I think there are some great take aways from this around the topic of real community growth. Titled the cultural anthropology Of Stack Exchange, you should give it a viewing, and take plenty of notes.
