To me, this is a fascinating essay. It provides insight why I put so much value in beloging to communities. The University of Twente community, the KIVI Engineering Society community, my 10-people student house, the fediverse community (you), the dataviz community (Data Visualisation Society), the Dutch Mud Men OCR community and so on.
It also gives me insight in why I've changed so much since high school. Back then, I just didn't find the right communities for me!
