Networks Exist. Don't need to build them.
Everyone struggles with the existing tools.
Has 2 kids (aged 8 and 10) who play soccer and baseball and like to meet friends at Brooklyn Bridge Park to play in the sprinklers.
Ann wants her kids to play pickup games in the park and invite their friends to come bowling with them.
Ann is not a big organizer and usually just group messages the same set of parents to set up activities for her kids.
Focus on existing networks and how to facilitate access.
Make it easy to auto-facilitate. Groups self organize around mutual desire for an event.
Expanding networks. Do networks grow organically? How to manage. How to encourage.
Empowering facilitators. Tools to help people organize a puppet show, a dance class, a robot workshop.
