Hopefully a Friday appropriate thread…
My team’s debating how familiar people are with online communities. I believe people innately understand communities and may not realize they are part of it or just how familiar they are with them. So - enter my hopes of finding a nice metaphor to use when discussing what we are building.
I’ve come up with a few ideas (below) and a few are rotten, any ideas or examples of metaphors you have used?
Fav so far - Coloring Book & Crayons
Everyone knows what this is, the users are crayons who work together
Second - sandwich (hence the getting hungry)
There are central pieces that create the structure (e.g., bread is the site) but what goes into it is what makes it great and many difference combinations work.
These ones don’t seem appropriate for my audience but may work in some
Puzzle - too structured
Car - too structured
Book - too scripted
Church - too political and not universal enough
School - may trigger negative memories…
What do you all think?
