Small Group Dialogue
SGD is a more perfect discussion tool built to foster intimate, high-quality exchanges.
By limiting group size and lifespan, Small Group Dialogue emphasizes each member's value, encouraging a sense of belonging and an investment in frequent visits. The result is a structured experience requiring minimal intervention, and an astonishing signal-to-noise ratio unmatched in any conventional online dialogue model.
Principles of SGD
- STRUCTURE OVER CLAMOR
- INVESTING, NOT DRIVING BY
- LISTENING INSTEAD OF FLAMING
- AUTOMATION REDUCES MODERATION
The SGD tool and technique were refined over several years, through a series of extraordinary discussions on topics including interracial families and the Clinton impeachment. The latest version of the software was built by Web Crossing, a leader in online community technology, in a non-exclusive partnership with Web Lab.
