[i wrote the big long survey answer you got about there being no community]
i was surprised to discover you hadn't apparently posted anything on the zbb about this! i was vaguely aware that somebody had written a somewhat academic paper ABOUT the zbb but on closer inspection today I saw it was just this: http://www.verduria.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=206
not you, obviously — a rather brief effort written, problematically, from somebody deeply embedded in the ZBB 'community'. if i were to choose two words to describe the emic attitudes towards the history of the zbb's "community", especially as exemplified in this post, it would be SHAME and IGNORANCE. The means by which these attitudes are constructed, are easily explorable.
basically every chapter and slide in the previous page can be productively problematised [especially 'abusive posting by veteran members' — hello!]
