- not-for-profit projects, activities & events, such as maker spaces, druid groves, science fiction conventions, local Burning Man events, open source software projects, Mastodon or Discord servers, board game/role playing groups, and Vibecamp

- co-housing and intentional communities

- scenes, where “scenius” emerges kk.org/thetechnium/scenius-or-

- subcultures & subsocieties
