The concept for me was a letter to your startup community from the machine. The prompt for ChatGPT from me: “write a blog post (letter) targeted at bad community actors who try and control everything when they know that it takes a village of all different types of founders, investors, researchers, students, professors, media to collaborate and respect each other and give each other power”


Dear Bad Community Actors,

It’s time to talk about something that’s been bothering us for a while now – your tendency to try and control everything within your community. We get it, you want things done a certain way and you have a vision for what you want to achieve. But the truth is, it takes a village to create something truly great. And that means respecting and collaborating with all different types of people.

Whether you’re a founder, investor, researcher, student, professor, or member of the media, you all have something valuable to bring to the table. You all have unique skills, experiences, and perspectives that can help move your community forward. But when you try to control everything, you limit the potential of what you can achieve.

Think about it. When you work with others who have different backgrounds and skill sets, you’re able to approach problems from different angles. You’re able to see things in a way that you might not have thought of before. And when you collaborate with others, you create a sense of ownership and investment in the community that can help it thrive.

On the other hand, when you try to control everything, you create a sense of mistrust and resentment. People feel like their contributions aren’t valued, and they’re less likely to want to participate in the community. You may get things done your way in the short term, but in the long run, you’re hurting the community as a whole.

So what can you do instead? It’s simple – collaborate and respect. Acknowledge that you don’t have all the answers, and that other people can bring valuable insights and ideas to the table. Create an environment where people feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and opinions, even if they’re different from your own. And most importantly, give other people power. Let them take the lead on projects, and support them in their endeavors.

Remember, a community is only as strong as its members. And when you work together and respect each other, you create something truly great.


The Community.
