Thinking about being cool - or not - this is what Wikihow has to offer on the subject. It’s silly and meant for people but, if you extrapolate it to communities, the principles hold oddly true. For example, tip #8 suggests that you practice your voice. For individuals, the meaning is obvious. For communities, however, voice is also important and we should consider the collective voice we use to speak of ourselves as a city. Tip #16 notes that it’s necessary to stay true to your roots. Of course, we’ve already violated the one thing they say never to do – admit that we’re searching the Web for tips on being cool.
