- Great piece in *The New Yorker* on the trend of DIY private clubs. In the past, private clubs were the exclusive based on wealth but today, theres a new generation of DIY grassroots private clubs forming to provide an IRL places for people from different backgrounds and industries to connect over curated social experiences.
I couldn't help but turn my mind to Lens when reading it....
As a social layer, Lens has the potential to power a wide range of digital communities that can be just as stimulating. We're already seeing the formation of micro-communities within the Lens ecosystem, where people who may never have crossed paths are connecting over shared interests.
- This comment left here by @punkess.lens today is an amazing example of that: https://lenster.xyz/posts/0x0f85-0x16a1

Looking back at the magic of old-school Twitter, what drew many of us in was the openness and ability to discover and connect with people from completely different backgrounds. However, the challenge was often taking those connections to the next level, into deeper smaller space curated experiences.
With Lens' ever-emerging front-ends providing more curation (e.g. @diversehq.lens launched today), digital community enabling tools (embedded governance in follower NFTs and publications), composability and ownership, we now have the ability to create meaningful connections throughout *the entire internet* on an open graph AND take them to more curated and defined experiences, fostering even deeper connections.
I am calling it *DIY Lens Clubs ✌️*
- In the beginning...
